Green Day fan given Fender Squier Telecaster
Graham Guldstrand took to the stage at the gig in Arizona on August 31st after Armstrong called for volunteers to take over the job of performing one of their tracks.
Taking over from a young woman who sang along to Longview, Mr Gulstrand was handed the mic and the Fender Squier Telecaster played by the lead singer to have his chance to perform before a sell-out crowd.
After a tentative start he soon began playing and singing, even jumping off the drum riser before asking for some water.
Berating him for being out of shape, Armstrong told the fan that as he did not have any water to offer him he could have the guitar instead.
Fans of guitar band McFly who want to learn to play their songs will soon be able to watch special video tuition sessions that will be posted on their website.
