Dave Grohl's Doctor Joins Foo Fighters for "Seven Nation Army" Cover

Last week the Foo Fighters brought Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith onstage for a 10-minute encore cover of the Faces' "Stay With Me." On Sunday's Fenway Park show in Boston, the group arguably upped the ante with a take on the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army," this one featuring another special guest.

Nay. Twas the man who's kept Dave Grohl hale and hearty for his current broken-legged tour, one where he's only able to headline by resting atop a Westeros-worthy throne. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lew C. Schon took the stage for "Seven Nation Army," not just to wave hello or take a bow—he sang the whole damn song and rocked out with his stethoscope out. (No actual stethoscope involved. It's a phrase. A doctor-y one.)

Covers haven't been rare on this tour. At Chad Smith Night in New York City, the Foo Fighters busted out Tom Petty's "Breakdown," the Police's "Next to Me," and Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure."

If the fan-film footage of Dr. Lew's appearnce wasn't enough, here's a better look thanks to Twitter:
