The Learn to Fly rockers host an annual fundraiser for Los Angeles schools, with donors being able to watch the band alongside their musician pals.

Appearing at the event with the Dave Grohl fronted band were Sammy, KISS rocker Paul, the Sex Pistols Steve Jones, Jane's Addiction star Perry Farrell, The Police drummer Stewart Copeland, and singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb.

Writing on his personal website Sammy revealed, "I sang one of the most up-tempo high energy versions of (his 1984 hit) "I Can't Drive 55" ever. With Dave (Grohl) singing the chorus with me, sooo (sic) cool.

"Then a soulful duet with Dave on "Finish What You Started" (which is a) classic Van Halen (song). Then (Foo Fighters drummer) Taylor Hawkins moved on to keyboards (this band is so versatile it's crazy)."

The 69-year-old rocker also told how Jason Bonham, the son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, played drums on a cover his father's band's song Rock and Roll to conclude the concert.

"Jason Bonham sat down on his drums and did an intense Led Zeppelin "Rock 'n' Roll". WOW!!!", he wrote. "The Foos were on fire. What a way to end the bash. I'm having more fun at this time in my life than ever - who would've thought?!? Now I really do want to live to be 100."

On Twitter, Paul also described the secret concert, writing, "Shakin' the walls & heavens with @foofighters & my bro Dave last night at a killer secret gig."
