99% of these are pre-arranged. All of the Foo Fighters' ones are (funny how every time they do, the "fan" KILLS it). And I'm not slamming on Grohl;
I'm a huge fan myself.
It takes some HUGE ones to bring a random person onstage and hand them an instrument; it's a total roll of the dice. There have been a few times
where it actually was a random audience member. U2 has done it; Springsteen too. They bring someone onstage, show them some simple guitar chords,
and they play along with the band. Most times it works. Sometimes it doesn't.
There's a classic video from the early 1970s where The Who was playing and drummer Keith Moon was so smashed he passed out. Townshend asked the
audience if there were any drummers in the house, and they brought a guy up. It might be on Youtube...lemme see...
