Dave Grohl made a majestic return on the 4th of July, performing on top of a custom-designed throne at a Foo Fighters concert in Washington D.C.
Last month, Grohl broke his leg after falling off stage, which resulted in several canceled tour dates. But the constant diet of painkillers provided some unexpected inspiration, leading him to dream up a blueprint for his throne while under the influence of morphine and Oxycontin.
Grohl’s drug-induced invention bears a resemblance to another famous throne – the one from HBO’sGame of Thrones – but swaps out swords for guitar necks and throws in some “lazers [sic] and s***” for good measure.
And somehow, despite wearing a purple cast and having to stay seated, Grohl and the Foo Fighters were still able to rock out - delivering a 24-song set.
And at one point, he even took a break to bring his mom out onstage, dedicating the song “For All The Cows” to her – maybe not the best song title for a dedication, but a sweet gesture nonetheless.
Grohl, his brand-new throne, and the rest of the Foo Fighters are back on track for their tour and have dates scheduled across the country and Europe through November.
