Foo Fighter Grohl recovers with help from Led Zeppelin
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.
