How awesome is this?

During a concert in Florida, Guns N' Roses surprised the audience by inviting a special guest to join them on stage - the son of the late great Eddie Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen.

Axl Rose introduced him to the crowd, saying:

Wolfgang Van Halen. You know how cool that is to say that? That’s f**king cool. You don’t understand. We’re talking legacy!

They then all jumped into Paradise City, with Van Halen playing guitar and singing backup vocals alongside Slash and Duff McKagan.

Pretty cool moment, which Wolfgang must have thought too, as he then posted this to his socials:

What a night alright. What an epic photo too! That's going straight to the pool room.

Here's a different angle from the same gig.
