Dave Grohl Falls Off Stage In Sweden, Breaks Leg, Still Finishes Show

The saga of “What can’t Dave Grohl do?” has hit a new high. During a Foo Fighters performance tonight (June 12) in Gothenburg, Sweden, Grohl fell off the stage and apparently broke his leg. Despite this serious injury, Grohl was able to finish the show anyway.

Dave Grohl is a Renaissance man. He’s a prolific musician, documentary film maker Record Store Day ambassador, and now, certified badass. Fan-shot footage posted to YouTube doesn’t show the actual fall, which happened during a performance of “Monkey Wrench,” which was only the second song in Foo Fighters’ set. However, it does capture Dave Grohl addressing the crowd right after the accident.

“Ladies and gentleman… I love you too motherf—ers,” Grohl began. “Now look, I think I just broke my leg. I think I REALLY broke my leg. So look, you have my promise, right now, that the Foo Fighters; we’re gonna come back and finish the show. 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.”

1. It's become fashionable in some corners to bash Grohl...

...I don't get it. The guy just keeps bringing a level of energy and excitement to his music that few others can match. His performance with Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen on Late Night with David Letterman was amazing. If you scout around YouTube you will find another Foo clip of them performing the same song in which Taylor Hawkins talks about wanting to keep the white suit and then changing his mind after finding out that it cost $5000.

2. Who would bash Dave Grohl????

I want names, damn it!!!! I saw the Foo Fighters back in January and they just killed it for like four hours straight. It was Dave's birthday and he announced the show on a Thursday, sold out on Friday and Saturday just tore into it. There was literally an all star cast accompanying Dave - there was Paul Stanley from Kiss, Tenacious D, Josh Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age, Perry Farrell from Janes Addiction, it just went on and on. Jack Black sang Happy Birthday, and they played Immigrant Song, there were lots of covers and Foo Fighters songs, easily the best concert I've ever been to. To paraphrase a quote from Homer Simpson - he who is tired of Dave Grohl is tired of life.

5. Check the Facebook comments any time Rolling Stone does a post on him

It usually comes across like some grade school level "Oh, he thinks he's so great" jealousy.

I mean, this guy threw a concert on his birthday and had Paul Stanley come on and sing "Detroit Rock City," for God's sake. Show me the person who wouldn't like to see that and I'll show you a bald-faced LIAR!!!!!

I love me some Grohl. I read a book about him, I think it was called This is a Call, fun read.

Peace

7. The more I see of Dave Grohl the more I adore him...

I thought Sonic Highways was awesome. And i love The Foo Fighters. This is one talented dude and he's a good socially active progressive.

12. Who doesn't love the Foos?

I saw them in January, easily one of my favorite concerts I've ever been to. I'm seeing them again in September. Can't wait!

And if you need legal assistance call the law offices of Grohl, Hawkins, Mendel, Schiflett, Smear And Associates:
