After seeing a fan who resembled the bassist, Dave Grohl invited the real Simmons to come off the edge of the stage during his gig at MGM’s Dolby Live Theater in the Park.
He then walked onto the stage wearing a face mask before handing a receipt to the Foo Fighters frontman and exiting.
As he left the stage, Grohl exclaimed: “Can we hear it one more time for Gene Fucking Simmons,” before telling the crowd that he had posters of the KISS legend on his wall as a kid. You can watch the footage below.
writing in the comments under Video, user unknown said: “Hey, this is fake Gene Simmons saying thank you to everyone who tried to get me on stage! Too bad security turned me down. I was legit when Dave said ‘Jean, here get up!’ He was talking to me, but he meant the real deal! Fair trade in my book.”
After the show, Grohl and Greg Kurstin wrapped up their second-annual Hanukkah seasons with a cover of the Kiss classic “Rock and Roll All Night.”
In the description of the video, Grohl wrote: “What better way to celebrate another year of Hanukkah sessions than with Chaim Witz and Stanley Eisen… Stanley of Kisses!!!”
Kurstin and the Foo Fighters frontman spent eight days covering songs by Jewish artists – one for each day of the Festival of Lights.
Other covers featured as part of this year’s Hanukkah sessions included Billy Joel’s “Big Shot”, Van Halen’s “Jump” and Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana”. Grohl’s daughter, Violet, also guest-starred on singing for the cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Take the Box.”
Meanwhile, Taylor Hawkins recently joined members of Queens of the Stone Age and Red Hot Chili Peppers for a live All-Star Jam in Malibu, California.
