Foo Fighters were joined Saturday by dozens of performers for the first of two tribute concerts honoring the late Taylor Hawkins.

Along with the dozens of celebrities — including Brian May and Roger Taylor from Queen, Liam Gallagher, Mark Ronson and Dave Chappelle — a special guest played alongside the band: Hawkins’ 16-year-old son, Shane, who joined the band for one of its biggest hits, “My Hero,” taking his father’s place on the drums.

In video captured from the livestream and shared on Twitter, Shane gave a passionate performance alongside his father’s longtime bandmates, ending the song with a drum solo as frontman Dave Grohl looked on with pride.
