Band members of Axl's new Guns N' Roses line-up have played a special surprise gig for lucky students in Oxford.
Guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thai and drummer Frank Ferrer wowed the young fans at the Witchwood School Of Rock to offer advice to budding rock stars and played several numbers.
"I'm actually more nervous going and talking to the kids than I am playing in front of 20,000 people," Ferrer told the BBC, "because you don't see them. Here you're going to see every little kid's face."
The visit was organised by the centre's Mike Dove, who claimed: "They had coffee in my house this morning so it's a bit crazy. I've realised a bit of a boyhood dream."
