Lots of teenagers have big dreams of becoming a world-famous rockstar one day. In many cases, those dreams come true.

But in the case of 13-year-old Evan Adamson, he got the birthday present to top all birthday presents by drumming onstage with Metallica for 68,000 people in Amsterdam. After he was brought onstage, Adamson began the drum intro to "Seek and Destroy" before swapping out with Lars Ulrich. Even James Hetfield joked that Adamson looked like Ulrich if he were thrown in the dryer.

Adamson wrote on his Instagram account that the experience has left him just about speechless. "Well well well no words I mean to play drums in front of 68,000 people with my hero’s my favourite band of all time was just the best thing ever and to top it all off it was my bday !!"
