Buckingham appeared alongside Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor on a starkly lit stage to recreate his role on the song ‘Copy of A’ from the group’s recent ‘Hesitation Marks’ album. If that seems like an odd combination, it turns out that the two are actually neighbors and have clearly struck up a mutual musical admiration society.
Buckingham then hung around to join Queens of the Stone Age for a performance of ‘My God is the Sun,’ from their Grammy-nominated album ‘…Like Clockwork.’ Foo Fighters leader and sometime QOTSA drummer Dave Grohl joined in for this part as well. Unfortunately, their performance was cut off by promotional messages for Hilton hotels and various other sponsors. (The version we saw was slightly different than the one in the video above, but clearly many of our readers saw the same thing we did.) Hey, we sat through your pop songs, wait until the rock and roll is over before starting the ads next time, huh?
Update: Looks like Reznor wasn’t happy about it, either…
