Kid guitarist steals spotlight at Foo Fighters show

Impromptu performance earns him a gift

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMBC) - A fifth-grader in Missouri took the stage at a Foo Fighters concert for the impromptu guitar performance of a lifetime.

Ten-year-old Collier Cash Rule is proof that when you get your shot, you gotta take it.



He found his way onto the stage Friday night at Sprint Center and started jamming with the Foo Fighters.


"They heard me say I can play the guitar and he let me up on stage," Collier said.


Jennifer Rule, Collier's mom, said she bought him his guitar two years ago.


"It was a just a cheap little electric guitar. At Toys 'R' Us, a Darth Vader guitar."

He hasn't put it down since.

"Like 6 in the morning, 6 at night..." Jennifer described.

When mom and son went to the concert, Jennifer had no idea her son would get called on stage.

"The guy next to me bumped me and said 'there he goes.'"

Collier jammed like a boss, and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was so impressed, he offered up a gift for the monster performance.


"He said bye and I said where do I put the guitar? What do I do with it? He said, do you want it?"


It was Collier's first stage jam, with more than 15,000 people cheering him on. Mom said that chances are, it probably won't be Collier's last.

"If he had anything to say about it he'd be resigning fifth grade tomorrow to go on the road. So we're gonna work on, you know, finishing fifth grade."
