    Anyone that has ever played a trombone knows that the slide is made of thin brass and very fragile.
    I don't care how hard you hit someone with it, the only thing that will die will be the slide.

    I got hit in the head by trombones all of the time when I was in highschool during marching season. In fact one incident I remember being in the middle of the show and one of the color guard ( flag twirlers), smacked me right in the face with the end of the metal pole of her flag while I was marching and playing. Looks like I'm lucky to be alive?

    When I was a teen there was a rumor going around that the Grateful Dead's wall of sound killed someone who got too close to it.

    A snake and a trombonist were both hit by a car. What's the difference? The snake was on his way to a gig.

    A guy died in our band once, after he was hit in the head with my wife's withering glare.

    I hope my wife doesn't see this thread. I told her I quit flying Cessnas and riding Harleys because they were dangerous hobbies and that she doesn't need to worry now that I am only playing music. :meh:

    After reading these articles, I'm glad I play a safe instrument like the bass. Just let me hoist it up the stairs at our next gig and...Whoa!!! Splat!
