posted by Oscar February 5, 2015

The next episode of the iconic series Austin City Limits will be completely devoted to the Foo Fighters. Today the band and ACL unveiled some footage of what we can expect to see on the forthcoming episode.

Above you will see the Texas-inspired song “What Did I Do?/God As My Witness,” alongside Gary Clark, Jr., off their last album Sonic Highways. After the jump you will find the band pay tribute to their host city by playing “Tuff Enuff” (with Jimmie Vaughan) a Fabulous Thunderbirds cover. What makes this last one great is that you get to see the Foos play with some Southern flair and the guitar solos are always just cool.

See the Foo Fighters’ full ACL episode when it airs February 7th on PBS. Continue Reading
