At a July 9 Foo Fighters concert in Toronto, Dave Grohl invited a fan up to the stage to play drums.

Anthony Bifolchi got noticed by the band after he held up a sign that said “It’s my birthday, can I play drums?” That is when Grohl told him to get on stage and warned him not to mess up. The group jammed to “Big Me,” and then Bifolchi capped off the experience of a lifetime by snapping a selfie with Grohl.

He thanked his “heroes” in a tweet:

So that just happened. Playing on stage with my hero's .. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. @foofighters #BigMe
