It happened at the band's South Carolina show this week
Dave Grohl and band played Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina on Tuesday (October 17) when they invited student Pierce Edge from the local University of South Carolina to drum with them. Edge had been holding a sign in the crowd that read: “Drums on Under Pressure?”.
Bringing the youngster onto the stage, Grohl joked: “Don’t shit the bed in front of your hometown, brother. You don’t want that to happen”. He later quipped: “That kid has got a lot of balls to jump up on stage and play drums, but tell you what, it takes some big balls to wear a shirt like that in front of this many people.”
