Remember Dave Grohl's light-up throne that he performed on back in 2015 after breaking his leg in Sweden?

The chair made its way through the rock world, as the Foo Fighters frontman lent it out to injured musicians in need, including Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose after he injured his foot at the opening Not in This Lifetime show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.

Grohl recently sat down with Classic Rock magazine, where he revealed how Rose's use of the throne in 2016 came to be. “Axl took it out with Guns N’ Roses, then he took it out with AC/DC, and then all of a sudden I became the guy you come to if you break a limb on tour, like Thrones R Us," Grohl recalled.

As a thank you, the rocker sent the former Nirvana drummer an impressive guitar. “He had Slash go pick me a guitar,” Grohl reveals. “And he picked me an early-’60s Gibson ES 335 Dot, which to this day is the nicest fucking guitar I have ever played in my life. It was an incredibly kind and classy gesture, and I was very appreciative."
