Dave Grohl Designed His 4th of July Throne While Hospitalized

In case you were out gallivanting on a beach or at a BBQ with buds, you might have missed Dave Grohl's triumphant return to the stage. The Foo Fighters frontman tumbled off-stage at a recent gig in Sweden, seriously injuring his leg. As a very unfortunate result, the group were forced to cancel their headlining set at Glastonbury. Dave even wrote a letter about the event.

The Fooies returned to the stage on the 4th of July to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the band's debut self-titled record and, you know, America. The fascinating thing is how Grohl decided to perform.

The Nirvana legend took the stage while sitting on a giant iron throne, one he designed while hospitalized with his injury. Check out the performance above (complete with throne sketch) then watch a video of the Fighters closing out David Letterman's last show and click through our gallery of incredible fan tattoos dedicated to the band.
