Motorcycle fans attending the Harley-Davidson 110th anniversary celebration in Milwaukee, Wis. were treated to a special performance Thursday night (August 29), when Foo Fighters' leader Dave Grohl took the stage.

He made his surprise appearance, joining the band Chevy Metal, who describes themselves as a "70s dirt rock cover band," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Grohl joked that he was there because the band was in need of someone who liked talking between songs. In reality, Foo Fighters and Chevy Metal have drummer Taylor Hawkins in common.

Grohl played guitar with the band on songs like Van Halen's "Panama" and "Miss You" by the Rolling Stones, but didn't take over vocal duties. After all, it's not his band. Another notable name, Joan Jett, watched the show from the sidelines and looked to be enjoying herself.
