Grohl's orthopedic surgeon Dr Lew Schon appeared onstage with band in Boston
Dave Grohl‘s own doctor who helped fix his broken leg appeared live onstage with Foo Fighters at a show on Sunday night (July 19).
The US band performed at Fenway Park in Boston with orthopedic surgeon Dr Lew Schon joining the group for a cover of The White Stripes‘ ‘Seven Nation Army’. Watch footage below.
“Holy shit, that’s actually my doctor,” Grohl exclaimed to the audience after the rendition. “What a badass”.
Grohl recently broke his leg at a show in Sweden, forcing the band to scrap their UK stadium shows and Glastonbury headline appearance.
Foo Fighters were joined by Bad Brains’ Darryl Jenifer and Dr. Know during a recent New York gig. The pair teamed up for their band’s own songs ‘How Low Can A Punk Get’ and ‘The Regulator’ in what Dave Grohl described as “the greatest fucking moment of my entire fucking life”.
At another New York show, they were joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. During the group’s encore, they invited Smith onstage to play drums for a rendition of The Faces’ ‘Stay With Me’, which originally featured lead vocals from Rod Stewart.
Foo Fighters will return to the UK later this year for a series of replacement live dates.
Grohl and co will play two shows at Milton Keynes Bowl on September 5 and 6. Iggy Pop will support the band at the gigs.
