The Foo Fighters frontman enlisted the help of members of Them Crooked Vultures and Jane's Addiction.

Dave Grohl brought his PLAY project live to the stage for the first time, with a little help from his friends.

The Foo Fighters frontman performed his solo instrumental project at Warren Haynes’ 2018 Christmas Jam on Saturday (8 December) with his Them Crooked Vultures' bandmate Alain Johannes on guitar, Jane's Addiction's Chris Chaney on bass, famous producer Greg Kurstin on the keyboard and more.

Speaking previously about PLAY, which he revealed back in August, the Learn To Fly rocker told The Daily Telegraph Australia that he was inspired to undertake the project after attending his daughters' music lessons.

"Watching my kids start to play music and learn to sing or play drums, it brings me back to the time when I was their age listening to albums, learning from listening … and when I take my kids to the place where they take their lessons, I see these rooms full of children that are really pushing themselves to figure this out," he said.

The Walk singer added: "And even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out … it’s not something that you ever truly master.

“You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve on what you’ve learned.”

And it seems his project has inspired kids in the same way.

One fan named Jon D Drew has shared a video of their tot watching the piece with a caption: "He is 17 months old and our little dude Charlie would rather rock out to this incredible song than be watching In the Night Garden or Paw Patrol"
