    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMBC) — Thousands of people attending the Foo Fighters’ concert at Sprint Center Friday night were introduced to a young guitarist with exceptional skills.

It was not planned.

Collier Cash Rule, 10, of Shawnee, caught the eye of the band’s front man Dave Grohl as he performed an encore on stage.

Grohl invited Collier to join him.

“Do you play guitar, Collier?” Grohl asked the fifth-grader, who attends Ray Marsh Elementary School.

“Yes!” Collier responded, prompted to speak into the microphone.

“What songs do you know?” Grohl asked.

“I know a lot of Metallica songs,” Collier said.

“Do you want to do a Metallica song?” Grohl asked him.

“Sure,” Collier said.

Collier was given a blue electric guitar and launched in to playing, “Enter Sandman.”

Grohl threw his hands up like Collier scored a touchdown and began clapping. The front man then began singing the song.

“That’s awesome,” Grohl said.

He asked Collier if he wanted to keep the guitar.

“Yeah, you want it?” Grohl asked again.

Collier said yes, and hugged Grohl.

Collier’s mother said her son loves music and started playing guitar two years ago when he was given his first electric guitar. She said he practices every day before and after school.

By the way, Collier’s middle name – Cash – is in honor of Johnny Cash.
