This is every music fan’s dream.

When hip-hop idols Public Enemy were left high and dry after their taxi drove away without them, British fan Kevin Wells came to the rescue, offering them a ride in his Ford Focus.

All four members of the band, including Flavor Flav and Chuck D, piled into the small car to travel to Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, England. Public Enemy was at a local record store signing copies of their new album, and were planning on taking a cab to the arena when it took off without them.

Wells, 50, was even astute enough to grab a selfie with the band, who were more than happy to pose.

“They were such nice guys, we had a right laugh,” Wells told U.K.’s The Telegraph. “We were chatting away, but the phone was constantly going as their management were clearly worried.”

At one point during the drive, the Queen song “Bohemian Rhapsody” — made famous in the movie Wayne’s World — came on the radio. “Everyone was singing the words and rocking out in the back of my car, it was like a Wayne’s World moment. I was looking in the rearview mirror thinking, ‘Is this actually happening?'”

Wells and the band made it to the venue with 15 minutes to spare.
