Late Night With Jimmy Fallon continued with Pink Floyd week (though it should be Nirvana week) on Tuesday night as Foo Fighters performed “In the Flesh?” with Roger Waters himself. Waters sang lead vocals and played bass on the classic opening track from Pink Floyd’s 1979 epic, The Wall. The song, already huge as the opening to The Wall, was monstrous with Dave Grohl and company’s Foo-power.
Fallon’s week-long tribute to Floyd kicked off on Monday when the Shins covered “Breathe” off of the album The Dark Side of the Moon. Waters’ enjoyed the cover stating, “what a great singer” James Mercer is. The tribute continues on Wednesday, when MGMT will cover “Lucifer Sam,” off The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Country singer Dierks Bentley will perform the title track from Wish You Were Here on Thursday, and Pearl Jam will close out the week Friday with The Wall‘s “Mother.” Earlier this week Pink Floyd released a massive six-disc box set edition of The Dark Side of the Moon.
