[NEWS] Dave Grohl Performed With Broken Leg

Foo Fighters 上週五在瑞典表演時主唱 Dave Grohl 失足從舞台跌下,不幸摔斷了腿。當所有人以為表演會腰斬時,他竟決定繼續演出約2.5小時,期間護理人員一直在台上準備。Dave 後來在社交網站上傳了一張斷骨的X光照片。這是再次證明了為何我們都愛Dave喔!事隔兩天樂團宣布被迫取消整個歐洲巡迴演出之旅,當中包括英國最大音樂節 Glastonbury Festival 的壓軸演出,並剛公佈會由 Florence and The Machine 補上。Dave 今天在社交網站發了一個幽默又窩心的帖子解釋今次事件,內容提到在小腿傷了六顆螺絲,因此醫生建議全面休息。(全文在下) 希望他盡快康復吧!

During a Foo Fighters performance in Sweden on last Friday, frontman Dave Grohl tumbled off the stage and broke his leg. He later continued the show for approximately 2.5 hours with paramedic on stage and later uploaded a x-ray of his leg onto his social media site. That’s why we all love Dave! Two days afetr the incident, the band decided to cancel the upcoming Europe gigs including Glastonbury’s headline performance on June 26, which will be replaced by Florence and The Machine. Get well soon!

Here’s Dave’s funny, heart-warming message.

“Hey everyone…. Your old pal, Dave here. Been a while, eh? It’s been one hell of a year, that’s for sure. Looks like we’ve got some serious catching up to do! Hmmm, let’s see…..where do I begin?

Drumroll, please….The funniest thing happened to me the other day in Sweden!

Two songs into our set at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, I made a mad dash to the right of the stage during MONKEY WRENCH to shred some tasty licks for the kids up front. It was a beautiful night, beautiful stadium, 52,000 screaming people….dream gig! Well….wait for it….I definitely shredded something (ZING!) Wound up feet first over the Edge (pun intended), dropping about 12 feet, dislocating my ankle and snapping my fibula like an old pair of take out chopsticks. Whoopsie daisy. Not good. Without realizing the extent of my injuries, I stood up to get back onstage and crumbled like a sack of Joe Theismanns (look it up, kiddies). That shit was B-R-O-K-E…. Operation went well. Had a great team and nice stay in hospital. Good curry, too! Thank you to everyone involved. So….here I am, recovering with 6 metal screws in my leg“

Slayer finally unveils new album artwork titled “Repentless”, which is set to release on September 11.

Arrogance, violence, world in disarray
Dealing with insanity every fuckin’ day
I hate the life, hate the fame, hate the fuckin’ scene
Pissing match of egos, fuck their vanity
Ain’t got the time, I don’t want anything from you
Feeding on my tolerance is all you fuckin’ do
No looking back, no regrets, no apologies
What you get is what you see

Live fast, on high
Repentless, let it ride
