Now this is a pro. Friday at a festival in Sweden the Foo Fighters are two songs into their performance when Dave Grohl fumbles during a jump and ends up falling into the pit breaking his leg. Yes he actually broke his leg. As he lie on the ground in pain he yelled to the crowd “I think I really broke my leg!” “You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters, we’re gonna come back and finish this show,” he said. “But right now, ladies and gentlemen, 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!”
And he did. Drummer Taylor Hawkins took over for about an hour playing covers until Dave Grohl came back from the hospital. He returned to the stage on a stretcher, with the assistance of two medics. They set him down on a chair where he continued to rock out for another two-and-a-half hours. Amazing.
