FOO FIGHTERS: Grohl Has a Scare in Australia

Dave Grohl did the best he could to keep a potentially bad situation positive on Saturday in Perth, Australia.

Foo Fighters were  in the middle of performing "Everlong" when a fan hopped up on the  band's runway, a catwalk that stretched from the front of the stage  pretty far into the crowd, and broke towards the stage with arms  outstretched. This should have been a signal to security to do  something, but they did nothing.

Fortunately, the fan just wanted  to hug Grohl, but these days do you want a rogue fan charging the stage?  Ever the pro, Grohl treated him politely, asking him his name -- which  the fan said was "Jevon, with a J" [pr: like Kevin, but with a J]. He  then told Jevon with as much charm as he could muster to "Get the [eff]  off my stage," and escorted him far enough for security to take Jevon,  with a J, away.

Grohl didn't seem rattled and even dedicated the  rest of "Everlong" to Jevon. Possibly not wanting a repetition from  other crowd members, Grohl told them that he'd just "saved [Jevon's]  effing life -- presumably by not having security beat the crap out of  him -- and that Jevon would "get to see another day."

WARNING! The video contains a couple of F-bombs, so do not post  to your station's website. FYI: The guy gets onto the runway at 4:15  into the clip.
