The past few days have given us some of the greatest (and wimpiest) examples of rock and roll. From broken legs to pyrotechnical difficulties, the Internet has graced us with amazing footage of shows gone right and horribly wrong.
First, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl broke his goddamn leg after falling from the stage, he then quickly got it set in a cast and then finished the show. Needless to say, the crowds in Sweden went ballistic. So did the Internet — especially when the band’s Twitter account posted Grohl’s nasty X-rays.
Then Michael Clifford’s hair and face caught fire during his band 5 Seconds Of Summer’s show in London. He quickly ran off stage, and the band cancelled the remainder of the show. He’s no Grohl, though all kidding aside, Clifford’s doing okay.
And now we have a new hero — David Achter de Molen, the lead singer of Dutch punk rock band John Coffey. He doesn’t break anything, nor does he set anything on fire. So what does he do?
HE CATCHES A CUP OF BEER FROM ACROSS THE VENUE AND DRINKS IT LIKE A BOSS.
Don’t mind me. I’m just finding all the music from John Coffey I can find.
