Is Dave Grohl a fan of Once Upon a Time in America?

He should be. It's one of the best films in existence. But why ask?

Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl broke his leg falling off a stage in Sweden, the BBC reports, and hence performed his Washington USA set from the comfort of a full-blown throne.

Doesn't it remind you of Max's throne in Sergio Leone's masterpiece Once Upon a Time in America?

Noodles: What is it?
Max: It's a throne. It was a gift to a pope. It cost me about 800 bucks.
Carol: It's from the 17th century.
Noodles: What are you going to do with it?
Max: I'm sitting on it.

It's quite a pivotal scene in the movie, as it reveals that Max's power has slightly gone to his head. Maybe fame is having the same effect as Mr. Grohl. Quite whether Grohl will end up faking his own death, as Max did, remains to be seen.
