Fan passes out backstage, gets photo pranked by Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones

Update: Intrepid readers have pointed out that this was no ordinary fan but in fact Sam Doyle of London rock group The Maccabees. Good eye, friends.

Them Crooked Vultures is kind of a rock supergroup, featuring John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin, Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters and Nirvana, and Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age. It’s the best of all worlds if you’re into rockin’ hard.

But apparently this eager fan at their show rocked a little too hard. Rocking his Led Zeppelin “Mothership” t-shirt, a fan gets backstage only to pass out before he can meet the band! Luckily, they understand. The band have probably been there before. So they did him the honor of posing for photos with him, even while he was passed out. They even put some rocking sunglasses on him to make him look extra cool!

The photo above is our mystery fan with John Paul Jones, and below is the same legendary fan with Dave Grohl.
