A few years ago, Dave Grohl performed a run of shows sitting in a giant motorized throne after falling off stage and breaking his foot. The throne was then passed to Axl Rose after his own injury, and two nights ago it was gifted again, this time to Darin Wall, the bassist for Seattle doom metal band Greyhawk who was injured earlier this month in a scuffle with a gunman outside his band's show. 

As the story goes, Wall approached a man with a gun who was attempting to enter The Shredder, a venue in Boise, ID on September 7. Wall then pushed the man to the ground and took a bullet in the leg in the process. Boise police later arrested 26-year-old Ethan Byrd. 

On September 27, Wall — bullet still lodged in his leg — returned to the stage with Greyhawk, sitting on the throne that Grohl had lent him. Wall shared a photo of himself on the throne to Instagram, captioning the post with:

It was beyond a thrill to sit in Dave Grohl from @foofighters throne last night. This whole ordeal has been intense, surreal and humbling. Of course I wish it never happened, and that this bullet was not in my leg, but the love and support the rock and metal community has shown is staggering. Words can't describe how moving this night was. Thank you all!
