Went to see the Foo Fighters at Madison Square Garden last night. I found it...a confusing experience.
For starters, opening act The Struts...
...seemed to be channeling the first Queen tour from 1974. (Later in the evening, BTW, the Struts' singer joined the Foos onstage for a spirited rendition of "Under Pressure.")
All well and good, but I drew the line at the usually estimable Taylor Hawkins' lengthy drum solo, which reminded of nothing so much as this.
Dave Grohl's truncated version of Billy Joel's "You May Be Right" also left me scratching my head.
I dunno -- I've been referring to Grohl and company as the Keepers of the Flame for a while now, but last night's show was a little too retro even for me.
