Currently on tour to support their recent web series and album Post Apocalypto, Tenacious D recently made a stop at Chicago's Riviera Theater. Fifteen years have passed since Jack Black starred in School of Rock, but his young co-stars haven't forgotten him, and one of them recently made the trip out to see the show and catch up with his old on-screen mentor. 

Drummer Kevin Clark, who played Freddy Jones, a.k.a. "Spazzy McGee," in the film, reached out to Black before the gig and received tickets and backstage passes so he could have a moment with the singer, and TMZ captured the meeting on video as you can see below. 

Clark hasn't acted since the movie came out in 2003, but landed his role specifically because he could play drums, and he's carried on doing so ever since. While he joined his co-stars for the Broadway rendition of the film, Clark left acting behind to spend time on various musical endeavors, including backing up Chicago musician Robbie Gold  and laying down beats for his own group Dreadwolf. He brought a shirt for the latter as a gift to Black, who immediately put it on for a snapshot featuring himself, Clark, Tenacious D's other half Kyle Gass, and Dreadwolf member Chris Defibaugh. 

The D just wrapped up the first leg of their fall tour but will pick back up again with a string of Canadian dates before heading back below the border to hit the U.S. West Coast in December. Check the official site for a list of dates and find Post Apocalypto animated series in full here
