Just when you thought rock legend Dave Grohl couldn't get any cooler, he went and brought an eight-year old kid onstage to play drums for a cover of Queen's "We Will Rock You" with the Foo Fighters. And, it wasn't just any kid, it was his own daughter, Harper.
On Sunday (yep, Father's Day, no less), Dave introduced her to the crowd at the Secret Solstice Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland by saying,
"About two weeks ago, my daughter said, 'Daddy, I wanna play the drums.'
And I said, 'Do you want want me to teach you?' She said, 'Yes.'
And then I said, 'Do you wanna get up in front of 20,000 people in Iceland and play?' And she said, 'Yes.'
So, ladies and gentlemen, welcome the next generation. There’s another Grohl on the drum set now."
This is the first song she learned.
Rock n' Grohl!
ICYMI: The Foo Fighters have a new song called, "Run." Its music video was directed by the elder Grohl.
