Last night (September 27th), rock royalty gathered in simultaneous celebration and mourning to honor the life of late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who suddenly died earlier this year at age 50. Following the tribute show at London's Wembley Arena earlier this month, the L.A. event was the second of two star-studded performance spectacles featuring famous friends and admirers of Hawkins.
One of the most metal moments of the night was when Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach, Dave Grohl and a couple other Foo Fighters united onstage to play through two Sabbath gems, "Paranoid" and "Supernaut."
It's almost always a good time to hear a group of proficient musicians dust off these classic Sabbath jams, and this gang kept the mood light and fun while they ripped through the early '70s staples — with the dude who laid down the original bass parts riffing up there with them.
