Taylor Hawkins was pictured covering David Bowie’s single Ziggy Startdust.

The Foo Fighters drummer took center stage this week as the lead vocalist for Chevy Metal – his dirt rock ’70s cover band.

Performing at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Foos legend gifted fans with a 20-song set, which included a cover of the famous 1972 track, taken from his album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Rocker Learn To Fly also covered Bowie’s Moonage Daydream and Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide from the same album, and All The Young Dudes, which the late icon gifted to Mott The Hoople.

Unsurprisingly, Chevy Metal’s set included various covers of Queen, as they are Hawkins’ favorite band, and covers of AC / DC, Black Sabbath and Mötley Crüe.
