Dave Grohl Breaks Leg, Finishes Show

Why do people love Dave Grohl so much? Here's another reason, from Rolling Stone...

It takes a special kind of commitment to keep entertaining a crowd of thousands on a freshly-broken leg, but Dave Grohl is dedicated to his fans. The Foo Fighters frontman took a catastrophic tumble off the stage during a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden on Friday, forcing him into a surprisingly brief hiatus to seek medical assistance, as the BBC reports...He then handed the show over to drummer Taylor Hawkins, who led the band in a set of covers in Grohl's absence. About an hour later, Grohl returned to the stage on a stretcher, with the assistance of two medics. They set him down on a chair, from which he proceeded to rock for another two-and-a-half hours.
