Dave Grohl Thinks His Broken Leg Is A Blessing In Disguise

Game of Grohl

 

Dave Grohl needs a break, or do we need a break from Dave Grohl? I know there are a lot of fans out there, but honestly, this last declaration by the Foo Fighters frontman is way over the top for me. As everyone knows, Grohl broke his leg while performing in Gothenburg in June and following the incident a few shows were cancelled (including the Glastonbury gig). However, the band is back on the road with Grohl performing while sitting on a giant throne, because he probably watched too many episodes of that ‘Game of Thrones’ TV series?

He recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly, and may be this is the effect of the painkillers, may be he is just insane, but this is what he said:

‘The shows we’ve been doing lately are our favorite shows that we’ve ever done. What seemed like a setback at the time has turned into this beautiful blessing in disguise, where this throne and these crutches and these audiences make us play longer and harder than we ever have. It’s this whole new energy in the show… I think the spontaneity of this situation we’re in right now just brings out a smile in everyone.’

A ‘beautiful blessing in disguise’? We have to wonder, why didn’t he break his leg earlier? I know that some people see his attitude as an inspiration, I think it’s insane, a broken leg or any accident is never a blessing, this is so ridiculous! Aren’t people tired of his über cheerfulness, his we-are-resilient-no-matter-what attitude? He is just lucky to have the most optimistic brain chemistry in the world and the health of a bull. I don’t say that he necessarily wants to give a lesson to people, but his rock & roll attitude, his the-show-must-go-on mantra is exasperating, this is just self-aggrandizing.

Everything has to be turned into a positive superlative, rather into a fucking positive superlative, because Grohl puts the f-word in front of every word he pronounces. Grohl will save rock & roll,… what did I say? He already did by playing this broken leg tour! He will even die on stage and he will say it is fucking awesome. Of course this is a bit cynical, but Grohl doesn’t have a cynical fiber in his entire body, and he never loses an occasion to sell a piece of rock history,… let’s not forget that Dave is selling these ‘Break a Leg’ shirts.
