Dave Grohl Will Perform in Camden Tonight From a Throne He Designed While He Was High
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is still recovering from a broken leg he suffered at a show in Sweden last month. The accident forced him to cancel a string of subsequent performances in Europe, but now he’s stateside and raring to go again—from the safety of a throne he designed for his cast-laden leg while he was “high as f**k” on oxycontin and morphine in the hospital in Sweden.
He debuted the throne in D.C. over the weekend at a Fourth of July show. As you can see from his original sketch, it comes with all kinds of special effects, like “lasers and shit shooting from the top,” an illuminating logo,” and a base made from guitar necks and “speaker cabinet material.”
The final design is actually pretty badass. In the video below, Grohl tells the story of his headline-making broken gam and explains the creation of the throne that you’ll likely see him performing from tonight when he and the Foo Fighters hit the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden.
