Members of Led Zeppelin, Queen and Foo Fighters formed a ‘supergroup’ to pay tribute to Freddie Mercury, on what would have been his 69th birthday [Saturday, September 5].

This momentous event took place at Milton Keynes Bowl during Foo Fighters’ set.

Rolling Stone reports that John Paul Jones and Roger Taylor joined Foo Fighters on stage to perform “Under Pressure“: a No 1 hit single in 1981 from the album Hot Space.

“Now look. I don’t know if y’all have ever seen a supergroup. This is a ‘superdupergroup,'” Grohl told the crowd after introducing Jones and Taylor. “I don’t even know what to say because this kind of shit doesn’t happen every day. Let me just tell you that the Foo Fighters, right now, are living out our rock n’ roll fantasy with you tonight.”

Foo Fighters have routinely played “Under Pressure” during their Sonic Highways tour with Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins share vocals on the duet.

Meanwhile, Queen are launching their own vinyl turntable alongside a box set featuring 18 coloured vinyl discs.

What HiFi reports that in conjunction with turntable manufacturers Rega the ‘Queen by Rega‘ deck features reproductions of classic Queen logos, including the Queen crest, designed by Freddie Mercury, printed across the platter.

The turntable features the hand-built RB101 tone arm, from the Rega RP1, a new high performance motor promising minimal noise and vibration, and a Rega Carbon MM cartridge. An optional upgrade to the Rega Bias 2 cartridge is also available.
