Joe Walsh put together an all-star lineup of Ohio musicians over the weekend for a big ol' jam at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus. The show - a benefit for VetsAid, the veterans’ charity he founded in 2017 - featured Walsh’s James Gang (playing their first full set in 16 years), Nine Inch Nails, the Black Keys, and the Breeders. Oh yeah - Dave Grohl, a native of Warren, Ohio, was on hand to sit in with some of the performances.
Grohl played guitar and did backing vocals during the Breeders opening set - as Kim Deal sang her Pixies classic “Gigantic”
Grohl also played a second drum set on two of the four songs from Walsh’s finale set - “Life’s Been Good” and “Rocky Mountain Way” and with the James Gang for their set-closing rendition of “Funk #49.”
