A star was born in real life last Friday as 10-year-old Collier Cash Rule got to play lead guitar at a Foo Fighter concert in Missouri.
And he played Metallica tunes.
A Foo Fighters concert in Missouri featured a special guest musician: a 10-year-old boy.
Foo Fighters lead singer, Dave Grohl, invited Rule to join him onstage and asked him if he could play guitar. Collier said he could and he was quickly outfitted with one of the band’s electric guitars.
Grohl asked Collier what songs he knew. “Metallica,” was the reply and, in seconds, the boy launched into “Enter Sandman,” as the rest of the Foo Fighters band joined in and Grohl belted out the lyrics.
The crowd went crazy.
After playing bits of two other Metallica songs, Grohl gave the boy the band’s guitar.
Grohl tweeted about the performance, too.
“Lookout world…Next generation of rockers coming soon to an arena near you! Thanks Collier! – Dave”
Metallica also weighed in, praising the young musician.
“How cool is this??? Show ‘em how it’s done, Collier! #nextgeneration,” the band said in an Instagram post.
