Dave Grohl, Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt & Other Friends Make Surprise Appearances on Rolling Stones Tour

It’s good to be Dave Grohl these days. One day you get to serenade Paul McCartney; the next, Sir Paul jams with you and the surviving members of Nirvana; and then it’s off to play with the Rolling Stones. The 50 & Counting Tour passed through Anaheim last week, and Grohl shared the stage with Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie, throwing himself into a rousing version of “Bitch,” the classic song recorded back in 1971. By the 2:48 mark, as one YouTuber noticed, Keith Richards practically stops playing and just stares in wonder.

Other guest performances on the tour have included Tom Waits singing “Little Red Rooster” in Oakland (below); Bonnie Raitt joining in on “Let it Bleed” in San Jose (I got to catch that live); John Fogerty singing parts of “It’s All Over Now” also in San Jose; and then, in a nod to the younger crowd, we have performances by Katy Perry (“Beast of Burden”) and Gwen Stefani (“Wild Horses”). Old timers will enjoy watching Mick Taylor join his former bandmates for versions of “Midnight Rambler” and “Satisfaction”.
