Dave Grohl Brings Daughter On Stage To Play Drums At Gig
Dave Grohl brought his 8-year-old daughter on stage to play drums with the Foo Fighters at a concert.
Harper Grohl was brought on stage with the Foo Fighters at the Secret Solstice Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland to play a cover of Queen's 'We Will Rock You'.
And it was all caught on film here:
Grohl said that his daughter told him that she wanted to play drums, he said: "I said, 'Do you want want me to teach you?' She said, 'Yes.' And then I said, 'Do you want to get up in front of 20,000 people in Iceland and play?' And she said, 'Yes.'"
"My days are numbered," usual drummer Taylor Hawkins said at the end of her performance.
"Ladies and gentleman, welcome the next generation... there's another Grohl on the drum set now," David Grohl said.

The Foo Fighters are playing at Glastonbury next weekend, so who knows if we might see a repeat performance.
Sure, the band might deal in a particularly insipid brand of stadium rock, but there's no denying the band offers decent value for money live.
Case in point: when they took to the stage at BottleRock festival in California's Napa Valley recently, following sets from acts such as Maroon 5 and Tom Petty.
Their headline performance was at risk of being cut short when the festival pulled the plug on their sound at 10pm, due to a strict curfew.
Apparently, the festival venue is surrounded by residential areas and after the first BottleRock, neighbours complained so much that a curfew was put in place.
However, this didn't stop Foo Fighters, who carried on regardless.
They were given a two-hour slot, but they ran over. The sound was pulled halfway through 'Everlong', but they continued playing and the crowd went wild.
Nice one, Dave.
