10 Year Old Shreds Metallica Song on Stage with Foo Fighters
This past Friday, at a show in Kansas City, Missouri, Dave Grohl invited a special guest on stage. The lead singer of the Foo Fighters asked 10 year old Collier Cash Rule to step on to stage because he had heard the little tyke like to dabble with the guitar. What happened next is the perfect example of why I like the Foo Fighters so much. Check out the video below.
As incredible as this story is, it gets even better. Since his performance with one of the biggest rock bands in the world, Collier has enjoyed a fair bit of internet fame. However, his reaction was far from what I expected from a 10 year old. My mistake was expecting the ordinary from a kid who is so obviously extraordinary. Collier is harnessing his new-found fame to help raise money for his friend Bo. Bo suffers from a laundry list of illness due to his condition. Currently, he has to get costly treatment for Type 1 diabetes, Epilepsy, Growth Hormone Deficiency, IGG deficiency, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Lung Disease, Chronic Diarrhea, and Granulomas on his liver and lungs.
Collier started a GoFundMe page for Bo in order to raise money for his treatments and has directed 100% of the attention heaped upon him after his viral video to the donation drive, and it worked. As of this morning, the goal of $10,000 had already been surpassed.
