Dr. Lew C. Schon, a Jewish orthopedic surgeon from Baltimore, had no idea helping Foo Fighters' front man Dave Grohl with his broken leg would end in one of the wildest experiences of his life.

"Holy s***, that's actually my doctor," said Grohl, as the middle-aged Jewish doctor took to the stage before a screaming crowd in Boston's Fenway Park.

Grohl snapped his fibula and dislocated his ankle after falling off stage during the Swedish leg of the Foo Fighters world tour this June.

To repay the doctor who made him fit enough to perform – on a specially made chair – he invite him on stage for what Rolling Stone called a spirited rendition of the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army."

After the good Jewish doctor completed the cover, the adoring crowd chanted "Lewwww". "What a badass," Grohl concluded.
