Watch Dave Grohl almost break his leg on stage, again

Lightning almost struck twice for Dave Grohl when he nearly broke his leg — again — during Foo Fighters‘ headlining performance at Florida’s Welcome to Rockville festival late last month.
In newly surfaced fan video from the performance, Grohl is tiptoeing along the edge of the stage while playing a guitar solo when he suddenly trips and falls to his hands and knees. Luckily, he quickly recovered, and gave the crowd an “all good” hand gesture.
When he got back on mic, Grohl declared, “I almost broke my f***ing leg right over there.”
“Here’s the way I look at it,” he continued. “When you get that close to breaking your f***ing leg, that means it’s a good show.”
As for the time Grohl actually did break his leg, that happened back in June 2015 when he fell off the stage during a Foo Fighters show in Sweden. Despite his injury, Grohl returned to the stage to finish the show while an on-site medic held his leg in place.
During the Foos’ U.S. tour that summer, Grohl performed from an elaborate, mechanized throne as he recovered.
