Foo Fighter Grohl re­cov­ers with help from Led Zep­pelin

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

Dave Grohl in South Korea. ROCKER Dave Grohl is re­gain­ing the strength in his bro­ken leg with a rig­or­ous phys­io­ther­apy rou­tine, by drum­ming along to Led Zep­pelin tracks three times a day.

The Foo Fight­ers front­man broke his right leg af­ter fall­ing off stage dur­ing a con­cert in Gothen­burg, Swe­den, last month. The band was forced to axe a pres­ti­gious head­line set at Bri­tain’s Glastonbury fes­ti­val as a re­sult.

They re­turned to the stage in Washington, D. C. ear­lier this month with Grohl per­form­ing from an enor­mous throne with his limb propped up.

“It’s funny, ever since I started play­ing the drums my right calf mus­cle has been twice the size of my left from stomp­ing the hell out of my kick drum pedal,” the for­mer Nir­vana drum­mer said.

“Now it looks like a sad lit­tle chicken wing.” so I’ve been do­ing a lit­tle bit of my own re­hab ther­apy lately, which is air drum­ming along to Led Zep­pelin three times a day. Sports doc­tors, take note,” Grohl said.
