The Foo Fighters rocker appeared on the Instagram livestream after a musician and fan appealed for him to take part in his Grohlathon.

Dave Grohl answered a fan's prayers by jamming with him on Instagram.

Pat Finnerty from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a big fan of the Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer, and has kept himself busy in lockdown by sharing a series of Instagram Live sessions which saw him record all the parts of one song.

The musician - who has been entertaining music lovers with four about five months - decided to get more ambitious on Saturday (15 August) when he tried to entice Dave Grohl to join him as he recorded the parts to Dire Straits' Money For Nothing, in a project he dubbed Grolathon.

Lucky for Finnerty, after nine hours of his musical feat, Grohl finally appeared on the livestream, right in the middle of a dinner party with his friends.

Watch Grohl and Finnerty interact for the first time below:

The bold and confident musician also conducted a mini interview with he Foos rocker and asked him if it was "good to be Grohl", to which he replied. "Yeah. It's the f***ing best".

When the Philly musician questioned if it doesn't ever get annoying, Grohl responded: "No. It's always awesome".
