Seeing kids with extraordinary talent never gets old.

Seeing little kids who are so far advanced beyond their years is always mind-boggling. As just one example, consider this 10-year-old boy who was invited onstage by the Foo Fighters to play this classic Metallica song. He gets up there and brings down the house with his epic skills on the guitar.

Collier Cash Rule was just 10 years old at the time when Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl invited him onstage to play guitar.

Back in 2018, a 10-year-old Collier attended a Foo Fighter concert in Kansas City, Missouri. In the middle of a break, Grohl notices him in the crowd and asks him if he plays guitar. The young boy excitedly tells him that he does.

And that’s when Grohl invites him onstage to play with him.

The young boy from Shawnee, Missouri, quickly took him up on his offer and got on to the stage. Grohl, then asks the boy what kind of songs he knows to which he replies:

“I know a lot of Metallica songs”

Collier picks “Enter Sandman” by Metallica and starts rocking out for the packed crowd.

As Collier begins playing the chords to the famous Metallica song, the audience lets out a huge yell as Grohl cheers him on and starts singing the words. It’s clear right away that this 10-year-old is a natural! He walks around stage while perfectly playing the complex song.

Grohl is pleasantly surprised by the kid’s talent, pointing at him as he walks away from the microphone.

When the song is over, Grohl wants to hear more from Collier and asks him to play another Metallica song.

He goes through a couple more Metallica songs, cracking up Grohl up along the way.

It’s not easy to perform in front of thousands of people, especially when you’re a 10-year-old kid. Grohl can’t help but laugh when Collier freezes for a second while up onstage, but the crowd cheers him on as he begins playing another song.

Drummer Taylor Hawkins, who formerly was the drummer for Alanis Morissette, comes in to back up Collier before they stop playing and Grohl asks the young boy if he wants his guitar.

Grohl gives Collier his guitar as a souvenir and the aspiring musician is left dumbfounded.

When Grohl asks Collier if he wants his guitar, the 10-year-old thinks he’s joking around.

The fans at the concert cheer for him to give him the instrument, and once Collier realizes Grohl is actually giving him his guitar, he instantly reaches out and hugs the superstar musician.
