It was an evening of collaborations we have by no means seen earlier than and should by no means see once more. From members of The Beatles, Metallica, Queen, AC/DC, blink-182, Rush, Led Zeppelin and extra taking the stage to salute their good friend Taylor Hawkins, it was the penultimate track of the night that hit hardest.
After a who’s who of rock’s biggest drummers had taken the stool over the previous 5 or extra hours, Taylor’s teenage son Shane – who had been watching within the wings all day – joined Foo Fighters onstage to carry out My Hero. And it was each bit as highly effective as that sounds. Because the deafening refrain ricocheted round Wembley Stadium and numerous tears cascaded to the ground, Shane did his dad proud and blasted tougher and with extra ardour than anybody else on the invoice.
Watch the footage for your self beneath. Then watch it once more.
