Dave Grohl’s 8-Year-Old Daughter Drums For Foo Fighters At Concert And Plays Queen

by 3 years ago

Dave Grohl apparently doesn’t get this whole Father’s Day thing. His kids are supposed to do favors for him, not the other way around. But Grohl’s love for his daughter couldn’t stop him from bringing his 8-year-old daughter on stafe to play drums with the Foo Fighters at a concert. Harper Grohl jumped 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.”

Grohl said that his daughter told him that she wanted to play drums, “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,” Hawkins said at the end of the tiny Grohl’s performance. “Ladies and gentleman, welcome the next generation… there’s another Grohl on the drum set now,” Grohl said.

The 8-year-old was not intimidated the least bit that she was taking over drums for one of the greatest drummers on the planet in Taylor Hawkins or that she was on stage with her father, who in his own right was one of the greatest drummers of all-time from his days in Nirvana. Plus the fact that there were thousands of people watching and recording her every move did not bother the young girl whatsoever.

Not only did the Foo Fighters debut a possible new drummer at the concert, but they also introduced a new song titled “La Di Da.”

Dave Grohl and the boys premiered a new song titled “The Sky Is a Neighborhood” at the show as well.

The Foo also played the first live performance of their new song “Run”
