Dave Grohl gives fan his shoe

Dave Grohl gave a Foo Fighters fan one of his shoes at a show in the US last week. Now he only has one shoe.

Actually, it was a spare shoe he had lying around, don’t worry. Why did he offer it up to the fan? Because she had a broken leg and needed a shoe. I’m sure you would have done the same. Although you might not be so attuned to the need for shoes when your leg is broken, you having not fallen off a stage in 2015 and sustained a similar injury.

Said fan was backstage at the show in Washington, DC, when Grohl’s orthopaedic doctor (what do you mean you don’t travel around with one of those?) informed her that the leg wouldn’t heal if she didn’t put a shoe over her brace.

She later explained to Alternative Press: “Dave brought [the doctor] out once he saw that I was on crutches, and that’s when his doctor mentioned that I was supposed to wear a shoe with my brace. I told him that my shoes didn’t fit over it because it’s pretty big and my shoes are kinda small. So Dave said, ‘You need one of my big high tops!’ and I laughed it off. I wore it for the rest of the night after Dave told me to put it on”.

If Donald Trump has his way, this will be how the whole US healthcare system works by the end of the year.
