Foo Fighters Resisted Dave Grohl's 'Crazy' Idea

(Classic Rock) Taylor Hawkins has admitted that the Foo Fighters thought frontman Dave Grohl was crazy when he said he'd perform shows while recovering from a broken leg.

He suffered the injury after falling off stage in June 2015, leading to the cancellation of a handful of concerts before Grohl returned to action with the help of a custom-made throne.

The idea for the contraption came to the bandleader in a drugged-up dream, and was built with the help of a roadie. It later became part of the Guns N' Roses reunion shows this year after Axl Rose broke his foot.

Drummer Hawkins tells the NME: "It was a bummer all round. Dave almost pulverised his entire f***ing leg. Missing Glastonbury was part of that bummer.

"We were excited to get out there, do our march through Wembley then Glastonbury headlining. We were set to pop - then Dave breaking his leg was a kick in the nuts.

"But like Dave said, 'We wlll go on, even if I have to sit in this throne I have in my mind. We were all like, 'That's crazy! It's crazy to think anyone's going to want to see you sitting in a throne.' And we did - and they were some of the best shows we ever played." Read more here.
