Foo Fighters’ lead singer Dave Grohl showed the world how professional he is when he kept singing even after his leg bone cracked clean when he tried to jump onto a ramp while performing in Gothenberg, Sweden with his group.

“I think I just broke my leg,” he told the crowd, stated the report in USA Today. “I think I really broke my leg.”

Dave Grohl later wrote about the incident for the Rolling Stone Magazine, ” It was a beautiful night, beautiful stadium, 52,000 screaming people. Dream gig! Well! Wait for it…. I definitely shredded something (ZING!)”

He meant that he shredded his leg bone. He certainly has a sense of humor.

Dave Grohl claimed that he wound up feet first over the edge, and dropped about 12 feet. The paramedics were eventually to find that he had dislocated his ankle and snapped his fibula. The singer claimed that the fibula snapped like an old pair of take out chopsticks. ” Not good. Without realizing the extent of my injuries, I stood up to get back onstage and crumbled like a sack of Joe Theismanns. That shit was B-R-O-K-E.”

Dave Grohl completed the show like a super trooper from a chair after the medics set his leg. He claimed that singing with a straight face was pretty hard after the break. He called the show single most bizarre Foo Fighters show in the entire 20 years of being a band.

The Foo Fighters were going to frontline the UK Music Festival before, but now after the mishap, Florence and the Machine will replace Foo Fighters at UK music festival at Glastonbury.

Dave Grohl was recently in the news when he had declared that he was obsessed with Taylor Swift, and had promptly dedicated three songs to her in a concert in Europe. Taylor Swift had opened for the Foo Fighters at the concert.
