Who could forget Dave Grohl's iconic light-up throne that he performed on back in 2015 after breaking his leg in Sweden? Now, the Foo Fighters frontman has passed the chair down to a fellow musician in need.   

Old Dominion's Matthew Ramsey fell on stage last year and the band was postponed three tour dates in February so that he could undergo surgery on his leg. Currently, Ramsey is on crutches. Grohl to the rescue, and now Ramsey has a way of performing with his injury.   

  

“So many jokes were thrown around about using Dave Grohl’s throne, finally we just decided to ask and see what happened,” Ramsey told People. “I’m sure Dave didn’t know that when he created this thing, everyone would want to use it. But, it has been an honor to sit on, and more importantly, it’s allowing us to keep the show on the road. Our fans are truly grateful. We owe him big for that.”  

Old Dominion took to Instagram to document the new addition to their stage set up, thanking Grohl for his contribution. See below.
