Watch the Foo Fighters perform Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around with Stevie Nicks

The Foo Fighters’ first show in LA last night featured a very special guest for two songs: Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks. The rock legend performed her 1981 cut Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, originally a duet with Tom Petty, accompanied by the Foo along with alt-rock sisters Haim on backing vocals. 

After the six minute track, the group performed Fleetwood Mac’s Gold Dust Woman. “Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t want to leave until we at least do this,” said Grohl before they began the rendition. Grohl and Nicks had previously collaborated on his 2013 Sound City documentary, and even performed a song they wrote together, You Can’t Fix This, on the Late Show with David Letterman in 2013. That song was inspired by the death of Nicks’ godson, according to Ultimate Classic Rock

Nicks first met LA rockers Haim, whom she calls her “sisters of the moon,” last October during a joint article in the New York Times’ T Magazine. Haim, who have been compared to Fleetwood Mac in the past, performed the song Rhiannon with Nicks for the publication. When they reunited last night, Nicks gave them a “magical scarf” to wear during the performance which the girls were extremely excited to wear.

Earlier this month in the UK, the Foo Fighters brought Queen’s Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones onstage to perform Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure. “Now look. I don’t know if y’all have ever seen a supergroup. This is a ‘superdupergroup,'” Grohl said to the crowd according to Rolling Stone. “I don’t even know what to say because this kind of sh*t 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.”

We’re not sure if Grohl and the Foo Fighters will bring on more special guests for their remaining North American dates, but we certainly hope they do.

Person listening to spatial audio using Apple AirPods Max headphones.

At WWDC 2021 (Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference), Apple officially added support for spatial audio with Dolby Atmos Music for Apple Music. It quickly became a popular format among consumers, too: Apple estimates that by February 2022, playback of spatial audio tracks had quadrupled from just a few months prior as people experimented with the format. But what exactly is spatial audio? How is it different from (or the same as) Dolby Atmos? And what kind of audio equipment do you need to listen to it?

There's a lot of ground to cover, and some of it is a bit technical, but we're going to break it all down in easy-to-understand terms. You'll be a spatial audio expert in minutes, and you'll know exactly how to access this growing trend in movie and music streaming.

How to convert your vinyl to a digital format
Rebirth of cool: Is vinyl ready for a second wind, or just a fad?

It doesn't matter one bit if your vinyl collection consists of just a single milk crate or if it fills several Ikea Kallax shelves and is slowly taking over your home — we can all agree that there's just something about vinyl.

Maybe it's the warm, uncompressed sound spinning off a solid turntable, or the feel of holding a physical piece of art in your hands while the record spins — it's a special experience that has regained much of its glory in a world dominated by digital streaming. The problem is, records are fragile, and crates full of them don't fit in your back pocket.
