Listen, we’ve talked about this before — it is an immutable fact that Dave Grohl is one of the most amazing performers to ever grace this Earth.
While other musicians will cancel shows for a myriad of publicist-approved reasons — most of which probably translate to a bad case “the ol bubble guts”, which is a totally real medical term (do not dispute it) — Grohl showed us what a real performer is when he broke his leg when he fell off the stage at a concert and continued the show while having a splint put on. He then continued the tour, performing on a custom-built Foo Figthers throne fit for only the finest of rock gods. If you’ve ever broken a bone, you know that something as mundane as watching TV or even taking a nap can be a painful task in and of itself, yet Grohl has continued touring. Despite the entourage of people he must have with him, traveling and sleeping in hotel beds can be uncomfortable as it is, let alone having to play show after show. He’s clearly superhuman.
But little did we know that when the Foo Fighters’ frontman needs medical attention, he only uses doctors with equal levels of complete badassery.
That right there is a cover of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” performed by the Foo Fighters and none other than Grohl’s orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Lew Schon, on lead vocals. Belting out the lyrics to the 2004 hit with reckless abandon and utmost confidence is something that we would all like to see in a medical professional.
The good doctor was brought up on stage at the Foo Fighters’ show on July 19th at Fenway Park in Boston, MA, and we’re sure that if the stadium had a roof, Dr. Schon sure would have blown it off. Dave Grohl certainly sums it up accurately saying, “Holy shit, that’s actually my doctor. What a badass,” which we can only hope is now the doctor’s ringtone. In the few minutes he was on stage, Dr. Schon became the envy of the city of Boston and now effectively has the ONLY story worth telling at any medical conference in the foreseeable future.
