The young boy apparently won a competition, and was invited onstage by the band for a quick jam session on the drums. And the audience went wild. Check out the footage below! 

This is not the first time Gojira have jammed with young fans either. Last year, another young drummer was invited to jam with them during soundcheck in Worchester, Massachusetts. Riley “Steelface” Lee, who was also only 12 years old, got to jam on Gojira’s track “Vacuity” with the band’s guitarist, Joe Duplantier. Watch that video down below too!

We're not sure if Gojira is gearing up to open a School of Rock or something, but we definitely down with the encouragement of young musicians. These are some talented kids, and we can't wait until they form their own bands.
