The cover has been a staple of recent Foo's sets and Hawkins has also covered "Under Pressure" on past tours. In addition, he fronted his own cover band, Chevy Metal.

Before jumping into the cover, Dave Grohl referred to Hawkins as "the best drummer in the f***ing world."

The band had been scheduled to continue their tour of South America in Colombia Friday night before Hawkins' death.
