Imagine this: Tim Cook walks out on stage to introduce a special musical act at the end of the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch event last month.
Instead of trotting out “aging Irish rockers,” though, imagine if the Foo Fighters came out. Then Zach Brown. And then they launched into the killer rendition of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” you can see below.
Seriously, where else can you get a folk-country singer jammin’ with one of the most consistently rocking bands this side of Weezer, mashed up with a heaping helping of Sabbath?
I mean, if Letterman can do it, why not Apple? Sure, it’s not super indie, and all these guys are still aging rockers, but it’s a damn sight closer to relevance than U2 was. And I like U2.
Anyway, enjoy the music.
