"They were great kids as well as players," guitarist says of Broadway's pre-teen rock band


During a rehearsal for the Broadway musical School of Rock, the young band for the show welcomed a surprise visitor to their stage. Guitarist Slash joined the kids to perform Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Paradise City" in between a pair of the hard rock band's tour dates in the New York City Area.

The pre-teen musicians had already begun performing "Sweet Child" when Slash jumped into the song, playing alongside Brandon Niederauer, who plays guitar prodigy Zack in the show. Niederarauer carefully watched the veteran rock star perform the song as they played the famous riff in unison. Singer Bobbi MacKenzie, who plays the show's band's soulful lead singer Tomika, powered through her vocals on the song without noticing the surprise guest behind her and looked shocked as she saw him after the song wrapped.

The full band with Slash also gave a raucous take on "Paradise City" on the stage before he posed with the kids for photos and met with the musicians. "It was really cool to meet such an enthusiastic and talented bunch of young rock 'n' rollers," the guitarist told Rolling Stone. "They were great kids as well as players."
