Had a gig last night, and my guitarist came out with me into the pit. He wasnted to do the sychronized headbang thing, so we started, only he stayed down, and I went up...and then came back down. So his headstock smashes into my right eye. Ok, got smacked right? Noooo. He has one of those ESP's with the spoint headstock that faces UP. So I get jacked (a graduation of hit) in the eye. I apparenetly screamed, and I spun around, and went on one knee. Hurt like a bear. After about 15 seconds of so, I got back up, and went back to my usuall live show (which is pretty wild). Turns out, it did a lot of damage. I had a couple of pictures taken, and I saw one...My eye is is almost swolen shut, nearly all the white is blood red, and I have a deep cut about an inch long under my eye. And when I got the pick, there was a trail of blood that went down to my chin...then the blood blister under my thumb, from being in the pit, and the sore back from (you guesses it) being in the pit. And I'm gonna do it tommorrow too. And Thursday, and Friday. God I love this game!
