Dave Grohl chugs a beer, falls off the stage in Vegas

The Foo Fighters performed Wednesday night at a private event sponsored by JBL at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Dave Grohl, in an acrobatic attempt to drink a beer with no hands, ended up dropping off the stage altogether.

In the middle of a guitar solo, Grohl motions to the audience that he would like some Bud Light. He places it on a (JBL) speaker and tries to sip, knocking it over in the process. So Grohl chugs the beer and tries to get back on stage, and finds himself falling backward onto security guards and equipment in the photo pit.

Of course, the fall didn’t keep him down for long. Before visions of his past broken leg could flash before our eyes, Grohl was back on stage and continuing the solo and show.

Back in June of 2015, the frontman fell off another stage in Sweden, broke his leg, wrapped it in a splint, and famously finished the show. He continued on the tour from his “guitar throne” built just for the injured rockstar.
