    Our guy broke his hand in four places today. Out for 6 months. Guess we need to start looking under rocks for a new guy.

  2. Be careful looking under those rocks. Wouldn't want you to break something, 'cause you know people can be so unsympathetic.

  4. The title of the OP seems a bit redundant but that's not why it fails. The OP itself does not give the vicarious thrill we as TB'ers need and deserve. Let's go through the stages of thrill:
    Stage 1- guitarist breaks his hand punching a wall in frustration (we've all seen that) <yawn>
    Stage 2- guitarist breaks his hand in a car door trying to stop his girlfriend from leaving him. <meh>
    Stage 3- guitarist breaks his hand in four places; punching a wall, trying to stop his girlfriend leaving, getting it stuck in a vending machine because his Doritos didn't fall, and getting it crushed by a falling satellite. <Gold, Jerry, GOLD!>

    1:30PM...broke right hand during educational role playing demo
    3:30PM...got to ER and had bone set, got cast
    6PM...played a 2 hour set on acoustic 12 string

    It just depends on how well you expect the guitarist to play

    He broke 3 fingers and a couple bones in his hand. And yes, he hit a wall. I feel bad for him but pretty dumb move in my book.

    Been there. Had a guitarist punch a Volvo once. Told him to pick a softer car next time.

    That really is dumb. As a guitarist I take über stupid care of my hands, or at least I try to.
    Tell him to kick the wall next time.

    I had a drummer who broke his hand punching a wall. He had this whole elaborate fictional back story he told the Dr, who simply replied "so you punched a wall?" I get the sinking feeling people do this too often.

    Tell him to stay out of those places.
     
  19. Ha! Idiot. Like I told my buddies when they wanted me to go to the skate park a couple years ago, "Dudes, we're 30. I gotta go to work tomorrow." Sure enough, a week later they all had broken arms and ankles. Serves'em right. Idiots. You really need to take care of yourself when you have responsibilities that depend upon you being in good health, like a job, a family, or a band.
