Update 6/13: X-Rays Confirm Dave Grohl Is A Badass
Everyone knows that Dave Grohl is a titan of rock, but if anybody needed more evidence, what happened in Göteborg, Sweden solidifies that status. As the Foo Fighters were rolling through their set, Grohl apparently fell off stage. That wasn’t the worst part, however….he suffered a broken leg. But that didn’t stop him from finishing the show. “Ladies and Gentlemen….I love you too, motherfuckers. Now look, I think I just broke my leg. I think I REALLY broke my leg. You have my promise that the Foo Fighters are going to come back and finish this out….Right now, I’m going to the hospital to fix my leg, and then I’m going to come back and we’re going to play for you again.”
After receiving some immediate medical attention, and the rest of the Foo playing some covers sung by drummer Taylor Hawkins, Grohl came back out to perform a cover of Queen’s “Under Pressure”, an acoustic version of “My Hero”, and a few more songs. “I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream,” said Grohl. That is dedication to your fans, right there. Good luck with the leg, Dave!
