Was in tears laughing at it. Like he's saying something smutty.
for coming back to finish the gig with a broken leg irritates me and I don't know why. Think I'd prefer it if he was like 'broke my leg fuck off'.
Seems like a top chap.
I was expecting a cut to Kent Brockman
I think the guy's a massive helmet and his band are shit, but coming back on to finish the show with a broken leg is pretty fucking cool. It's all very well preferring Morrisseys, which I do in most cases, but there's something to be said about somebody who leaves the stage for no fucking reason when you've paid a shit load of money, versus the guy who doesn't let a broken leg stop him.
also not all crowd pleasers are Dave Grohls, them kids in Los Campesinos! aren't adverse to a bit of crowd pleasing, and it's one of them many great things about that band.
like coming back to finish the gig represents excellent customer service or something.
if it was an actual proper broken leg i doubt he'd have been fit for doing anything but breathing through an oxygen mask
you probably don't believe a Tweet from the official Foo Fighters' page showing an X-ray of the break.
JUTSIN BEIVNER WOULD NEVER DO THIS HE WOULD PROBABLY USE THE CAST AS A MEANS OF SNORTING HIS PRECIOUS MARIJUANA
but I think Internet hyperbole has soured me to almost any publicly acknowledged good deed or general feat; like when some smug-looking child finds a 2p poking out from a modest cluster of dog shit and starts a Tumblr page and a flashmob to try and find out who dropped the 2p in the dog shit or whatever
"u dont have to thank me, just do something nice for someone else and like and share if u think the government would be wrong to hypothetically ban this #dogshitcoin"

the attitude in this thread full of people that look to duck a day off work because los campesinos didn't reference ATP in their latest album.
'Ugh I commend his honest intentions in continuing the performance but honestly that band are solely to be enjoyed by the proles and lack the finesse of
Not kept up with their more recent output but they had some tunes.
with a bad leg
think about that for a sec
Like you're all waiting/hoping that some sort of veil will slip and you can all be 'ah-ha! Told you no one was that nice!' about it.
Some people might just be genuinely nice. Far from saying he's perfect, and FF haven't engaged me musically in a long while, but I'd still go watch them if I was at a festival, and I still love loads of their back catalogue. Given everything in his life he's experienced he could be way more misanthropic and a total Morrissey, but he isn't.
is like that about LITERALLY EVERYONE though
and I'm never really sure about this 'nicest man in rock' schtick. He seems fine to me but Courtney Love really hates him for being a sleazebag so I'm always a little reserved on all-out love. Great drummer, though.
Courtney Love is clearly not the most well of people. That doesn't mean she's wrong. I try not to give in to society's pressure to automatically dismiss things said by women with a history of mental illness, etc.
I wouldn't believe things that Grohl said about Love particularly either, for the same reasons...
because he sleazed all over her?
Anyway, I'm just saying that if you were the 'nicest guy in rock' that would mean you shouldn't have anyone giving you a lot of high-profile shit, and he does. So I don't entirely believe he can be THAT nice.
Lot of time for Krist, but I've not actually said anywhere that DG is the nicest guy ever, or that there is a scale of niceness? Just that there are a lot of pricks out there, and he seems pretty genuine and nice.
I don't know what you think you're arguing here. Look at my first post:
"and I'm never really sure about this 'nicest man in rock' schtick. He seems fine to me but Courtney Love really hates him for being a sleazebag so I'm always a little reserved on all-out love."
I'm literally only saying I don't really buy this universal, "He's so nice, he's the best thing". :D
from different angles. As I put across I don't think he's perfect, and I never mentioned the buy in for the Nicest guy stuff either, because I don't, everyone is flawed and I'd be reticent to give anyone that title
with money, Nirvana and Kurt essentially being at the centre, no?
I wouldn't take sides on the basis of those things because it's impossible to get impartial facts on everything?
"Anyway, I'm just saying that if you were the 'nicest guy in rock' that would mean you shouldn't have anyone giving you a lot of high-profile shit, and he does. So I don't entirely believe he can be THAT nice."
stop repeating it. Immediately
EMO's going for the lolz, then? Nicely pulled in! :D
the daily struggle of being Dave Grohl
from a fairly young age that often turns people into wankers.
Seems like a top bloke.
SURE! That can only end well!!!!"
FF Bassist: Dave, we should play my wife's festival!
Dave Grohl (NMIR): Sure, what's it for?
FF Bassist: Oh just this things she's doing...
FF Bassist's Wife: Hi Dave, nice to meet you, btw after you've played Monkey Wench would you mind saying HIV doesn't exist?
Dave Grohl (NMIR): ... is it too late to pull out?
shout out needlessly defensive foo fighter fans. i'm sure dave is a very nice man. who cares though? btw Florence and the Machine already did the 'break your leg jumping off stage' thing, where was her thread
If only there was some precedent in the world of 'news' about how stuff is reported compared to the worldwide popularity of the person it happens to.
and at least three saying everyone on this site hates DG
our posts are very different
so I will just say that Dave Grohl broke his leg and finished the gig and I have no opinion on it
(I'm a Foo Fighters fan by the way)
with a broken leg
If any of your flavour-of-the-month reverby twats ever wrote anything as good as Everlong you'd literally have a brain haemorrhage.
But you should have picked a better Foos song, like White Limo.
which made it even more annoying that they did an acoustic version of it the only time I saw them live. The dickheads!
are just jealous
is an rude, egotistical flat earther until proved otherwise.
If the front-person of my favourite band fell off the stage two songs into a gig I'd been looking forward to for ages, I'd be pretty chuffed if they made it back on stage an hour later with their leg in a temporary cast.
Can't imagine Alan from Low stagediving, tbh (though he did nearly brain someone with a flying guitar once)
he tripped over and fell off the stage
I can't imagine Alan from Low tripping over and falling off a stage. The guy barely moves.
"Imagine having a negative opinion about this."
For balance, whilst I think Dave Grohl been nothing but a bit of a legend here, I do get a bit annoyed when musicians get on their (usually macho) high horse about cancelling shows. Rock stars are allowed to get ill y'know?
than I or any of the boring bands I pretend to like could ever muster"
You stupid babies.
(not read the thread, I just imagine you're being stupid babies. )
(Apologies if not)
(I'm not a FF fan just to be clear)
Dave Grohl recording all the drumming on the second foo fighters album and not telling the drummer at the time kind of negates the nice guy thing for me. Also don't think this is particularly impressive, he probably had his eye on the news stories the whole time. Also let's not forget his involvement with that godawful god only knows cover.
there was a period in 1999 where the band were just vocals, bass and drums; no guitar.
Has everything. Would read again.
And that it splinters and the bone shoots up his leg and exits through his groin, so he ends up heroically finishing another show bleeding to death from his cock.
That's what I wish.
Can someone just please sumarise the beeves?
you say taylor swift, i say acdc
you say justin bieber, i say foo fighters
Dave Grohl would probably cancel a show if there was a near-certain chance that, rather than just having to sit down in a cast or whatever, he'd be violently evacuating liquid jets of human shit all over his bandmates while trying to get through Everlong, constantly distracted by his doomed attempts to clench
repost this if you're in the minority of people who still listen to heavy metal and rock!
