As a show of thanks for Grohl’s doctor, the Baltimore-based Lew C. Schon of MedStar Union Memorial Hospital Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, the Foo Fighters brought him onstage during their Boston show on July 19, to jam on a song together. Fan-filmed footage shows Schon coming onstage for the band’s cover of the White Stripes‘ “Seven Nation Army.” In the video, the doctor can be seen stepping up to the mic to contribute some surprisingly good vocals as well as snazzy dance moves.
As previously reported, Grohl returned to the stage with the help of a custom-made throne that allows him to rock and recline without having to “just sit on a stool like Paul Simon.”
“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,” Grohl explained last week. “It’s this whole new energy in the show.”
Now that the band has completed its two-night stand in Boston, they’re off the road for a few weeks before they pick things up again on Aug. 12 in Edmonton, Canada.
