Supergrass singer Gaz Coombes pinch-hit for Dave Grohl at the taping of VH1’s Rock Honors tribute to the Who on Saturday night, thanks to Grohl’s voice being too tired to make its way through two songs. Coombes sang “Bargain” while backed by the Foo Fighters for the show, which will be broadcast Thursday night. Meanwhile, Pearl Jam covered “The Real Me,” a song choice that makes me wonder if they’re trying to dethrone Blackie Lawless as the heir to that particular track. Fight! Fiiiiight!
