Here’s Dave Grohl rocking out in the moshpit at a Metallica gig

Foo Fighters‘ frontman Dave Grohl has been photographed in the crowd and posing with fans at a recent Metallica gig.

Having previously gone on record as saying that he would be “a diehard Metallica fan until the day I die”, Grohl surprised fans at the metal veterans’ recent show at the Rose Bowl in California when he snubbed the VIP area or a private box to stand among the crowd.

As well as being captured rocking out, he also took the time to pose with fans.

“I bought the first Metallica album on cassette from a mail-order catalogue in 1983,” Grohl told Creative Loafing in 2015. “I had never heard of them. I didn’t know anything about them other than they had a cool name, and the description said “thrash metal.” I didn’t even know what that meant. I had listened to tons of punk rock music, and I loved Motörhead, but thrash metal? That sounded scary and cool. So I sent them my $6 or $7 and a couple weeks later I get this tape in the mail. It was Kill ‘Em All and it blew my fucking mind.

“I will be a diehard Metallica fan until the day I die because of that experience. It was like someone had sent me the Holy Grail. I was like, “Ahhh! This is so killer!””

Foo Fighters release new album ‘Concrete And Gold’ on September 15, and will play a one-off UK tour date at The O2 in London on September 19. Tickets are available here.
