The Foo Fighters are well-known for their entertaining live performances and they refuse to let their fans down, even if lead-singer Dave Grohl breaks his leg mid-performance. On the 12th of August at the Rexall Place arena in Canada, Grohl asked someone in the crowd to come and sing their cover of Rush’s “Tom Sawyer”, and Brian Roberts, a field service technician, volunteered.
The lucky fan spoke to CBC News, saying, “It was a very epic experience, I was nervous pretty much the whole time. ‘Don’t screw the song up, don’t screw the song up’”. On the contrary, his singing was extremely well-received! “How did you f***ing hit those notes? […] I don’t even know how to follow that s**t”, Grohl exclaimed with a generous grin. Footage of the show can be viewed below.
