As Charlie Watts lit off the quick fill that starts the song, Grohl strutted out from the shadows between Watts’ drums riser and the organ rig. After swapping a quick lick or two with Ronnie Wood, Grohl joined Mick Jagger at center stage, where he played guitar and sang lead on a verse from the 1971 Sticky Fingers tune.
Grohl, the Foo Fighters frontman, is the latest in a string of guests who have joined the Stones onstage on their ongoing “50 and Counting” tour. Gwen Stefani and Keith Urban sat in during the band’s tour opener in Los Angeles earlier this month, and Tom Waits and Katy Perry have appeared as well.
The Stones’ brief run last year in London, New York and New Jersey also included a roster of all-star collaborators, including Eric Clapton and, in a tour-ending blowout, Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen. The 50 and Counting tour continues through June 24th in the U.S. before the band heads to England for a handful of shows at Glastonbury and in Hyde Park in London.
