While most people with a broken leg would take things down a notch, Dave Grohl appears to be feistier than ever perhaps in spite of his injury.
The Foo Fighters frontman has been sitting in a Game of Thrones style chair rigged with lights, guitar necks and the band’s logo on tour, and now he is even bringing his leg cast into the act – literally.
Grohl broke his leg last month after falling off the stage during a show in Sweden, and he managed to come back and finish his performance. (Though the band did have to cancel their remaining shows in Europe for June so Grohl could begin the healing process).
On July 4, Grohl was back in the throne. On July 6 in Camden, Grohl started working his leg cast into the routine, playing the guitar facedown on the toe of the cast during the song “Outside.”
Grohl asked the audience for their opinion on his performance: “That was the first time I’ve ever done the f—king cast solo. Is that okay?” Grohl asked. “Do you like that cast solo? I haven’t done that yet. What do you think Camden, should I keep that cast solo? (pause) Looks like I’m doing it in Toronto.”
In Toronto on Thursday, the band covered Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” in front of Geddy Lee’s 90-year-old mother and Grohl’s mother.
The Foo Fighters are on tour through the U.S. and Canada until October 18, when they head back to Europe.
