From being part of the legendary grunge band Nirvana, Dave Grohl did not let the inactivity of his previous band stop him from continuing to make music for people. Dave formed the band Foo Fighters and is the group’s frontman, main songwriter, lead singer, and rhythm guitarist.

Together with his band, which is composed of Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, and himself, Dave goes on tour around the world and performs in front of thousands of people.
During their show in Sweden this year, however, Dave met an untimely accident on stage and broke his leg. He fell and was lying on the stage, unable to get up. The singer continued to insist that he would continue with the show after he got his leg fixed. He yelled, “Ladies and gentlemen, right now I’m gonna go to the hospital. I’m gonna fix my leg. But then I am going back, and we are gonna play for you again. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. We are gonna do it.” The rest of the group continued to perform with Taylor Hawkins taking the vocals.
Being true to his words, Dave returned to the stage in that same show and stood in front of the mic, singing his hearts out, not minding the pain. People were seen clapping and cheering the singer on, although some were actually crying. (No one knows what the tears were for.)
And being the true icon that he is, on the fourth of July, Dave and the rest of the Foo Fighters returned to the stage, having their first gig after the incident. Wearing a purple cast on his injured right leg, Dave took the spot as the band’s vocals again, singing while sitting on a throne emblazoned with Foo Fighters logo.
Dave Grohl didn’t mind the pain and went on with the show. For the audience, there was no better way than to spend the Independence Day than jumping to the tune of a band that lets no accident stop their show.
