Grohl Takes A Tumble

Evidently Dave Grohl needs to pay attention to where his feet are taking him.  The Foo Fighters frontman fell from the stage today during the band’s gig at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The Foo Fighters frontman continues to perform after falling off stage and injuring his leg during a show in Gothenburg, Sweden, June 12.

Details are sketchy but Grohl apparently fell during “Monkey Wrench,” the Foos’ second song of the evening

Lying on his back yet still holding a microphone, Grohl told the audience that he needed to go to the hospital and that the band would be back to “finish the show.”

However, reports indicate Grohl came backto the stage after receiving treatment backstage.  ITV News, citing witnesses, says he “returned 15 minutes later to resume his performance while wearing a cast,” telling the crowd, “I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream.”

Of course there’s video.  Right now the clip getting the most attention seems to have been shot right after Grohl fell and includes his promise to fans that he and the band will return. But be careful where you are when you watch this – the video’s soundtrack is slightly NSFW.
