DWITTSend DWITT a message :   I was practicing one evening, back when i played bass, and the strap fell off at the bottom so the head came up and the key hit me in the corner of the eye. I had to explain that to Kelly Deal, cause she was my neighbor at the time and wondered about the black eye. She said, "Nice. Very Rock n' Roll."   2003-08-19 17:33:54
gun shoSend gun sho a message :   in a band i played in when i was 19, the bassist swung the head of the bass into my head during the show. one of the tuning keys hit me along my eyebrow and my head split open. it was during the first song. by then end i was extremely bloody and lightheaded. that's my rock and roll blood story, thanks.   2003-08-19 17:30:33
DWITTSend DWITT a message :   I bled all over my drums one evening on a night when i was in a particularly foul mood. We were supposed to play this show at around midnight, when in fact we actually started playing at a quarter to 3 in the morning when MAYBE 20 people were left after there being 200 or so earlier.
I was angry and bleeding and pounding the shit out of the drums.

standardSend standard a message :   Hey, I certainly don't mean it to sound like I'm giving you shit. (I agree - ALWAYS play through a song.) My right thumb bends back past a right angle because of whacking it on the pickup of my bass for a bunch of years. It hurts when it rains and everything.
It's just more like, take better care of yourself and learn to not hurt yourself on the instrument. Change string gauge, get the neck adjusted, hold the guitar differently, whatever. If you're really doing the Hetfield super-downpick thing, I'd say switch to bass picks and just plain old get your fingers further awau from the strings. It's not about holding back, maybe more about focusing.
I enjoy sloppy playing as much as anybody. I guess I just don't think extreme bodily harm is a part of it, is all. I reckon we're not playing the same type of music, though, so that's fine. I play light "easy" jazz.

raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   never ever stop i say. for anything (cops, fights, etc)
tape is useless and very very hindering.
-unhindered by talent -mike
ps - he's right - it didn't really take that much for all that blood to come out. this usually happens by the second tune.

multiballSend multiball a message :   "I think you're taking the guitar rock hero thing a little too seriously"
bleeding happens sometimes - i've been playing for over 15 years - my technique could use some tweaking but it's certainly not shit.
besides it's not like you have to hit an artery to look like you did. small nick usually does the trick, it just trickles out over the course of the song. sometimes you don't even notice til the pick get's sticky.
sure, tape it up between songs if you can, but stopping mid song? uh uh...inexcusable....that shit may fly with honey baked goodness...

raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   proof of my sloppy playing is the blood up the neck a ways and the pick marks all over the damn place on the guitar. perhaps i'll just sit quietly in a chair from now on.
i agree the type needs a little work - i originally wanted it to look like duct tape. i was wishing there was a set list on the stage i coulda worked with.
the carpet is the drummers kurt. he has trouble with his shit moving all over the place.

raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   the cuts usually happen the worst on the inside of my thumb (as you can see it hitting in the pic) then the tips of the three fingers that are sticking out hit the strings as well and bleed a small amount on the outside edge. i also come away with a bruise the size of a baseball on the inside of my wrist. my right knee is also terribly bruised the next day. it isn't ever pre-meditated it does sincerely just happen - i play sloppy with poor technique i suppose, but i cant resist it and dont ever feel good when i try to resist it - then i feel like a poser. it doesn't affect the playing or the shows energy the next night outside of it gets damn hard to hold on to that pick when there's blood all over. i have to continually wipe it on our bass players t-shirt. the real kick is seeing the blood the next day on the tips of the chuck's.

Darren GrealishSend Darren Grealish a message :   I've had my fingers bleed like that while playing. It happens to me If I have one of those weird hang nails. Like when your cuticles get all dried out and crack. The slightest bang on a string or pickup makes them bleed all crazy and it wont stop. It looks all wild but it's just a little hang nail. So when it would happen to me it wasn't faked but it also wasn't because "Wow, I'm playing so hard and fast my fingers are in shreds". It just happens sometimes. :roll:   2003-03-03 17:15:17
KurtSend Kurt a message :   I wasn't trying to slam you mike. I just thought the shot was set up because looking at the nice blue carpet,it looks like you are playing in your living room. But if you say it's from a gig, I trust it is.   2003-03-03 17:13:27
ShawnySend Shawny a message :   yeah, i understand that, but i'm just saying that certain shows are really prone to injury...the cuts on my fingers are actually in really weird spots, and i don't know how they got there.   2003-03-03 17:04:00
seripopSend seripop a message :   the trick is to tape yr fingers   2003-03-03 17:02:49
ShawnySend Shawny a message :   i dont know about that...depends on the type of show. it's easy not to get hurt for some people with their style (even hardcore bands, some of their playing styles are not-injury prone), but others just go nuts and can't help it. i totally feel this guys pain. i'm really injury prone when i play, and i've been playing for 12 years. i play all the time, but a certain something happens when people are there to see you. i have a laundrylist of injuries from friday night: my arms are torn to shit, two fingers split open, i have an actual indent in one knee, i can't really walk properly yet, i have an unknown cut along my neck, and a rug burn rash on my thigh. i also have a pair of jeans that are either covered in blood or rust. can't figure out what it is.   2003-03-03 17:01:20
seripopSend seripop a message :   don't get yr panties in a knot i didn't mean it as a dig just saying from lots of road experience that once u star playing night after night (if u do start playing night after night) you'll figure a way to not cut up yr hands like that   2003-03-03 16:54:02

raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   damn. ok look, no we dont tour - were still a local act, but we play 2 to 3 times a week most of the time. this image was not fucking "set-up" - that's dumb. i didn't even know the shot existed until a week ago when whoever does our website put it up. (
the bleeding happens since i switched to the sg. we play old-school punk ala misfits mixed with some rockabilly influence. my point is there is a ton of downpicking and the design of an sg is one in which the body angles back leaving the strings somewhat high off the body. these facts combine to make a somewhat devastating mess of my right hand. it hurts, but the release is worth it. i sure as shit dont do it for attention - that is absurd. it's shocking to me that showing a photo of someone playing with conviction results in all these jabs at insincerity and posing. it's a bummer really.
a well known musician from new jersey (we'll call him the boss) is famous for playing until he collapses from exaustion (no pun intended) - do you think he does it for attention or is does he possibly just like to rock-n-roll?
well - i'll leave it at that i guess.
ps - at the risk of seeming even more like a poser - who is this big dan i keep getting compared to? forgive my ignorance of his work.
thanks to those who actually left valid comments on the flyer.
best - mike :mrgreen:

standardSend standard a message :   If conviction/emotion/release=bleeding, then I think you're taking the guitar rock hero thing a little too seriously. I've bled a bit in my day on stage, but I don't see the point in pushing a performance to such an extreme that it renders you useless for the next gig. Unless your gigs are so few and far between that it doesn't matter (that's not a dig), where maybe balls-out is more justifiable. I'm just talking, you know... common sense, I guess.
I'm not saying you should cry, I'm saying a little electrical tape can do wonders. The only people that should bleed that much in front of an audience are performance artists, because they crave the attention that much.
