Who is the next act to sit on the Guitar Throne?
Back in 2015, Dave Grohl famously fell off stage and broke his leg. Rather than cancel their tour, Grohl had a chair made up that resembled the Iron Throne from game of Thrones. That tour rolled through Vancouver in September of 2015.
Dave’s guitar throne would find itself in need again, used by Axl Rose of Gun ‘N Roses during their Not In This Lifetime Tour 2016.
Now the Throne is off on tour with country band Old Dominion. Guitarist Matthew Ramsey fell off stage and injured his leg. Instead of cancelling shows, Dave’s throne was there again and Old Dominion was able to march on.
Ramsey said in People Magazine: “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.”
