As some of you may have heard, this past weekend in Sweeden, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl took an unfortunate spill off stage resulting in a dislocated ankle and broken fibula (see the full clip below).
While most musicians may have called it night after an injury like that, Grohl impressively regained his composure and – with the help of an EMT – finished out the rest of the set.
In a recent write-up posted to the Foo Fighter’s website, the stoic rock icon took a second to give fans an update on the catastrophic event.
Below is a snippet from said post:
“Two songs into our set at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, I made a mad dash to the right of the stage during MONKEY WRENCH to shred some tasty licks for the kids up front. It was a beautiful night, beautiful stadium, 52,000 screaming people….dream gig! Well….wait for it….I definitely shredded something (ZING!) Wound up feet first over the Edge (pun intended), dropping about 12 feet, dislocating my ankle and snapping my fibula like an old pair of take out chopsticks. Whoopsie daisy. Not good. Without realizing the extent of my injuries, I stood up to get back onstage and crumbled like a sack of Joe Theismanns (look it up, kiddies). That shit was B-R-O-K-E.”
