Foo Fighters Announce Massive 2019 Shows

In a recent KLOS interview with Foo Fighters members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, the Foos reacted to an embarrassing mistake when the KLOS host was discussing Freddie Mercury and the new Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

The DJ accidentally called Freddie Mercury by the wrong name, Eddie Mercury, when asking about another potential film.

Dave Grohl quipped, “I like Eddie Mercury. Like as if Eddie Murphy played Freddie Mercury.”

Taylor Hawkins added, “Adam Mercury.”

Foo Fighters recently reviewed footage of Rami Malek recreating Queen’s Live Aid performance in the biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, and they were very excited about it (via Radio X).

Drummer Taylor Hawkins is a huge fan of Queen and knows the Live Aid footage off by heart: “I based my entire career off it!” he jokes.

Watching the clip, Grohl gasps: “He does the run! That’s amazing!”

“This is gonna be so frickin’ weird, man,” adds Taylor, joking that he’s the ultimate Queen nerd: “I’m gonna be looking at that and saying ‘Well, he didn’t have those cymbals at Live Aid!’”
