Dave Grohl Broke Leg During Concert And Kept Performing

Dave Grohl is a cool dude, right? Like I’m not a huge Foo Fighters fan, but I like some of their tunes, and I’ve always appreciated what he has to say in interviews about the current state of music (good lord, I sound 92). I remember he did one interview where he gave American Idol major sideye. My point is, he’s always been solid in my book, but after hearing about his story, I now think he’s totally badass.

Grohl was performing with The Foo Fighters in Sweden, when he suddenly fell off the stage. Here’s what happened next, according to PEOPLE:

“Now look, I think I just broke my leg. I think I really broke my leg, so look you have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters, we’re gonna come back and finish this show,” he said as he lay on the stage. “But right now I’m gonna go to the hospital. I’m gonna fix my leg but them I’m gonna come back and we’re going to play for you again. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.”

Grohl, 46, then asked drummer Taylor Hawkins to fill in for him as he was carried out on a stretcher.

After being attended to by medics backstage who cut his jeans and bandaged his leg, Grohl came back out, took a seat and continued performing.

Apparently, when doctors asked him if he needed anything, his response was, “Whisky. Now.” Of course it was. That’s the cherry on top of the sundae of badassery that is Dave Grohl.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?

Chelsea Handler is going to be doing an interview with Dave Grohl on Sirius XM on Monday, and she really, really wants people to listen. Like, so much so that she’ll show you her entire left breast if that’ll make a difference at all. Chelsea posted the photo, in which she appears sitting on a motorbike next to three friends, on Twitter. I’ll throw it below the cut for those of you at work.

So uh, tune in to Chelsea’s Town Hall on Monday?

Now Courtney Love’s Accusing Dave Grohl of Seducing Her Daughter

From Rolling Stone:

Courtney Love has accused Dave Grohl of attempting to seduce her 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, Gawker reports. The Hole singer made the accusations on her private Twitter account last night, claiming that her estranged daughter’s roommate informed her that the Foo Fighters frontman “hit on Frances.” Grohl is, of course, the former bandmate of Frances’ father, Kurt Cobain, and has known her since she was an infant.

In a series of subsequent tweets, Love threatened Grohl and speculated on his “pathology,” noting that Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins resembles Cobain and is in the “submissive drummer position” in the band, and that he named his daughter Violet, which happens to be the name of one of Love’s biggest hits. She later declared that Grohl is “sexually obsessed” with Kurt, relaying information from a driver who claimed that Grohl had “his hands all over” Frances in his car.

This lady really is off her nut, huh? I mean, Dave Grohl is probably, like, the nicest band person in Hollywood. He’s been married nine years, he’s got kids of his own, he’s always doing humanitarian work under the radar, and to really put the thing to rest, I’m sure there’s positively no way that he’d want to tie himself further to Courtney Love than he already is, beyond the fact that he happened to be good friends with her husband, who’s been dead for, oh I don’t know, almost twenty years.

Courtney’s got a protected Twitter account, but Gawker got a screenshot of the f-ckery, and this is much what it looked like:

And here’s the rest:

Of course, Grohl and his camp denied it, making an official statement (not on Twitter) that alluded to Courtney’s craziness:

“Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”

I feel bad that Dave had to go as far as publicly denying this, because no one should be giving Courtney an ounce of credibility (it’s only going to encourage this kind of BS, seriously), and as for Frances Bean? God. Poor girl. She just doesn’t stand a chance as long as this lady is living.

Dave Grohl: Poo Fighter


There are few things in this world that warm my heart more than seeing a dyed in the wool rock star pushing a baby stroller.

Saturday afternoon, Foo Fighters front man and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl and his wife Jordyn Blum took their two baby girls– two month old newborn Harper Willow and 3 year old Violet Maye– for a stroll and a quick nibble at The Stand. They win the parents of the year award for most normal, adorable baby naming.

Dave eschewed the standard flowery diaper bag in favor of an orange backpack, but you know that thing was packed with booty wipes and maybe a binkie or two.
