Watch Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters rock Metallica classics with a 10-year-old fan and guitarist

Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters are known for inviting budding musicians on the stage to encourage them to continue with their music, but the band had a special jam session with a 10-year-old fan named Collier at their show in Kansas City on Friday (Oct. 12). Grohl invited Collier on stage, and Collier proceeded to wow the audience and Foo Fighters with some impressive guitar chops.

When Collier came up on the stage, Grohl asked him what he would like to perform on guitar. Collier is apparenlty a metal fan who likes Metallica, and he began playing “Enter Sandman.” The Foo Fighters soon joined in on the jam, and Grohl did an impression of frontman James Hetfield singing the famous chorus.

From there, Collier continued to impress the crowd by performing famous riffs for “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” and “Wherever I May Roam.” Grohl seemed to love the performance and even told the audience that pop star Ed Sheeran, who was performing in Kansas City the next evening, “ain’t got nothing on Collier.”

Grohl also gave Collier his guitar, but warned him that if it made its way onto eBay next week, “I’m gonna find you.”

After the concert, Grohl continued his praise for Collier, tweeting, “Lookout world…Next generation of rockers coming soon to an arena near you! Thanks Collier!” Metallica loved what they saw and tweeted, “How cool is this??? Show ’em how it’s done, Collier!”
