251 Dave Grohl Fills In On Drums For Cage The Elephant During Salt Lake City ShowPhotos: Cage The Elephant Live…

According to the Salt Lake Tribune:

[Cage the Elephant] singer Matthew Shultz told the crowd that drummer Jared Champion had been hospitalized for a burst appendix, so the band seemed tentative as a substitute drummer began their set. But the band and crowd got a spark when Grohl surprisingly sat behind the drum kit and played the last five songs of the opener’s set, with Shultz remarking that it was “one of those moments I’ll never forget for the rest of my life.”

Grohl showed he was a vital cog in two of the three bands that performed, by emoting and sweating and running and pounding and skipping, and even duck-walking. For a rock fan it was, well, nirvana.
