EXTRACT: Footage of the upcoming Queen biopic starring actor Rami Malek leaked out recently, and people are getting pretty excited – particularly mega-fans Foo Fighters.

The clip – which has now been taken down by the film-makers – showed Malek and his co-stars recreating the legendary band’s famous appearance at Live Aid in July 1985.

So when Chris Moyles sat down with Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins last week, he thought he’d give them a sneak preview. Drummer Hawkins is a huge fan of Queen and knows the Live Aid footage off by heart: “I based my entire career off it!” he jokes.

Watching the clip, Grohl gasps: “He does the run! That’s amazing!”

“This is gonna be so frickin’ weird, man,” adds Taylor, joking that he’s the ultimate Queen nerd: “I’m gonna be looking at that and saying ‘Well, he didn’t have those cymbals at Live Aid!’” MORE
