Dave Grohl Reveals Why He Would Be Happy To Never Walk Again

Foo Fighters performed at the First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown, PA on Tuesday, and Dave Grohl discussed his throne, broken leg, and his roots in the area, as transcribed by Alternative Nation. Grohl first discussed he would be happy if he had to stay in his throne.

“You know why I’m sitting in it, don’t you? You know why? Cause it’s fucking cool as shit, that’s why. Oh, and also I can’t walk! But let me tell you, if I never, ever, have to stand up again, I think I might be perfectly happy in this thing because it has a drinkholder, and lights.”

Grohl then changed his tune, hoping he can soon be ‘learning to walk again.’ Grohl said, “But I hope it’s just temporary, because I sure love running around when we play, for anyone who has ever seen us before. I’m singing a ballad right now, and I’m not going to dedicate it to the ladies. I’m not going to dedicate it to the wonderful people of this part of the country where my people come from, just so you know. I think this is as close as I’m going to get on this tour to the place that I was born. I got a little Pittsburgh in me! Sweet Miss Virginia Grohl, my mother, was born in Pittsburgh, I don’t know if you know, it’s true. All of my family comes from that other turnpike, that’s over there.”

A fan also requested “Low” with a sign, and Foo Fighters obliged the request and performed the song live for the first time since 2009!

  • Thelonious Funk

    This dude’s chasm of awesome is bottomless. He spots a fan holding a sign requesting a song they haven’t played in years and the band obliges. How many big-name rock bands out there do something like that?

    I would be happy if Dave Grohl would never talk again. Or must there be a daily Foo-ey?

  • ITURBIDE

    Grohl is the most awesome rockstar alive.
