Say what you will about Dave Grohl – This man is 100% Rock and Roll. According to reports, The Foo Fighters man broke his leg after falling off stage in Sweden, while playing the song ‘Monkey Wrench’. After falling, he kept singing while lying on the floor until he was moved backstage.
While being taken care of, the band played covers as drummer Taylor Hawkins took the lead. Not long after Grohl came back to finish the show, sitting in a wheel chair while paramedic cast his leg. How amazing is this man?
Before leaving the stage, Gohl turned to the audience and said: ‘Right now, I’m gonna go to the hospital. I’m gonna fix my leg, but then I’m gonna come back and we’re gonna play for you again. I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry. We’re gonna do it, but right now, Taylor Hawkins, you’ve gotta do it. You’ve gotta do it’. But Grohl was back no long after, in serious pain, and yet he did not want to disappoint the thousands in the crowd.
Hours later, the band posted Grohl’s x ray image of his broken leg, adding: “Thank you Gothenburg. That was amazing”. So inspiring. Get well soon, Dave. You are the man.
