Guns N’ Roses shared pro-shot footage from their September 4 headlining set at the BottleRock Napa Valley festival, which featured Dave Grohl joining the band on stage for “Paradise City.”

Grohl joined in on guitar and backing vocals, sharing a microphone with bassist Duff McKagan. The performance did hit a snag when power was cut off from the stage to the strict 10 PM noise curfew in Napa Valley. However, that didn’t stop the crowd from picking up the slack and singing the song along with the band, who didn’t stop playing despite the lack of sound.

It was a very fun live moment that would be seemingly unheard of decades ago. One fan pointed out in the comments on YouTube, “Imagine going back to the 1990’s and saying that DAVE GROHL made a cameo at a Guns N’ Roses show… People would LAUGH at you.”
