Dave Grohl Breaks Leg then Plays On, Redefines Being Total Rock God

A Foo Fighters show in Gothenberg, Sweden came to a sudden halt when lead singer Dave Grohl fell into the pit.

After finishing the song he said, according to WMMR: “I think I really broke my leg. So, you have my promise that the Foo Fighters are gonna come back and finish the show. But right now…I’m going to the hospital. But then I’m gonna come back, and we’re gonna play for you again! I’m so sorry.”

While Grohl was rushed to get medical attention, the band played a few songs with drummer Taylor Hawkins on vocals. Keeping his promise, Dave Grohl then returned to the stage in a wheelchair and cast and finished the show.

The band later tweeted Grohl’s X-ray.

This goes show what an incredible and relentless performer Grohl and the Foo Fighters really are! We hope his leg heals up quickly!
