As Alternative Nation reports, Dave Grohl and co., during their tour stop in Missouri this weekend, invited 10-year-old Collier onstage who, as it so happens, is a pretty bloody decent guitarist.
When Grohl asked him if he played guitar, he said “yes” before saying that he “knows a lot of Metallica songs.”
Then, like the future guitar lord that he is, Collier erupts into the iconic opening notes of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ and the crowd, and Grohl, lose it. This launches an impromptu, full-band cover of the song, with Grohl giving his best James Hetfield vocals.
After the concert, the band’s Instagram posted a clip of the performance, saying “next generation of rockers coming soon to an arena near you!”
Metallica also shared the video on their FB page, saying “How cool is this??? Show ‘em how it’s done, Collier!”
Watch clips of the cover below.
