10 Year Old Boy Joins Foo Fighters Onstage To Jam Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”

At a Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City, something extraordinary happened when frontman Dave Grohl teamed up with 10-year-old guitarist Collier to rock out on Metallica’s classic “Enter Sandman.” Grohl, a big Metallica fan, invited Collier onstage to share the spotlight with him and late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.

With impressive confidence, young Collier delivered iconic riffs from “Enter Sandman” on Grohl’s guitar, while Grohl sang vocals and Hawkins played the drums, creating an electrifying performance that wowed the audience.

Encouraged by Grohl, Collier even tackled intros to Metallica’s “Welcome Home Sanitarium” and “Wherever I May Roam,” showcasing his talent and passion for music. This 2018 performance holds special meaning for Foo Fighters fans, happening just before Hawkins tragically passed away during the band’s tour in Bogotá, Colombia.

Collier’s incredible performance went viral, amassing 11 million views online. Foo Fighters are known for embracing young fans onstage, as seen in another viral video featuring 11-year-old drummer Nandi Bushell jamming to their classic “Everlong.”

Grohl’s love for Metallica is well-known, and he has expressed his desire to collaborate with the band. Reflecting on his passion for drumming and songwriting, Grohl once shared his fantasy of playing alongside Metallica, highlighting the profound influence the legendary metal band has had on him.

“Enter Sandman” remains a stadium rock staple, Metallica’s most iconic hit with over 1.1 billion streams on Spotify. Its monumental success propelled Metallica’s self-titled album to a 16x Platinum certification in the US, solidifying its status as a timeless rock anthem. With its infectious riffs and unforgettable chorus, “Enter Sandman” continues to captivate audiences worldwide, securing its place in rock music history.
