Foo Fighters collaborates with a fan during its show at the Blossom Music Center near Cleveland. The fan named Lukas played the guitar on the 1997 hit song "Monkey Wrench."
The band has been asking the fans to perform with them onstage since October last year when drummer Pierce Edge pleaded to perform with Foo Fighters at the Colonial Life Arena in South Carolina. Since then, Dave Grohl and his bandmates have asked at least one fan to join them onstage per show.
On Wednesday night, it was Lukas's turn to impress Foo Fighters and the fans of the band, and he did just that. Foo Fighters even gave Lukas a few seconds to perform solo.
Grohl drank champagne while he listened to the fan playing his guitar. He said that it felt good not to have to be the one to always play the instrument.
When Lukas got off the stage, Foo Fighters went on to play some of their biggest hits such as "My Hero," "Best of You," "All My Life," and more. The band also covered some songs such as "Under My Wheels," "Another One Bites the Dust," "Jump," and "Imagine."
Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins Perform 'You Oughta Know'
Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins also played Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know." Hawkins previously served as a drummer for the female singer. Grohl sang the lines to Morissette's song with quite an ease.
"One of these days we're gonna bust out that Alanis Morissette s*** and it's gonna blow your minds," declared Grohl.
Grohl also said that he wanted to see Morissette perform with them in the near future. "You Oughta Know" was released in 1995, and featured in Morissette's Jagged Little Pill album.
The other songs in the compilation are "All I Really Want," "Perfect," "Hand In My Pocket," "Right Through You," "Forgiven," "You Learn," "Head Over Feet," "Mary Jane," "Ironic," "Not the Doctor," and "Wake Up."
Dave Grohl Records 25-Minute Instrumental
In related news, Grohl made headlines this week after he had recorded and filmed a 25-minute instrumental. The Foo Fighters frontman literally played his instrument for 25 minutes without uttering lyrics. He also recorded the entire process.
"When people would ask me, 'Why are you going this?' I'm always like, 'I don't know. Because I've never done it before?' It's just the challenge of doing something new. That becomes your engine after a while. But that last thing you want to get caught in is extreme monotony," explained Grohl.
