Has anyone out there heard and like or dislike Brian's work with the Foo Fighters?
Pretty good stuff. He played on a couple tracks on The Foo Fighters' "One By One" album. "Tired Of You" was just ok I thought as a song, but Brian was good.
They also worked together on the song "Have A Cigar" for the film soundtrack of "Mission Impossible 2". I have NOT heard that one though. Is it any good?
Nothing special. Taylor Hawkins is an amazing drummer, not quite an amazing singer on this track. More of a raw scream. Brian's guitar is Brian doing what he's done a thousand times, which is very tasty but nothing new (not implying he never does nothing new by the way.)
From what I hear Brian has collaborated MANY times with The Foo Fighters over the years.
Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins INDUCTED Queen into the USA Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, and Dave Grohl & Taylor Hawkins also wrote tributes to Queen in the CURRENT Q/Mojo Queen Classic Special Edition.
I LOVE the Foo Fighters, so certainly I've tracked down every performance Brian ever did with them. Pleased to see a few of my favorite gentlemen jamming together from time to time.
Their version of "Have a Cigar" is very nice, though I wouldn't call it one of my favorites. "Tired of You" is great, and I have several live performances as well, if anyone's interested.
