Default injured by music

Hai all,

I find it interesting to know if somebody else ever had something so absurd as happened to me.

Septembre, 17th I was dancing in de kitchen on Walk. Exactly on the sentence "Learning to walk again" my achilles tendon ripped of completely. Hospital, operation, cast, feet on the couch for minimal two weeks and around 3 months out of action. I need therapy to learn to walk again (to make the step!). So is this fucking ironical or not? I still like the song, I'm not thinking of dancing on it ever again. LOL.

So this is my story. I would like to know if there are more stories like mine. Injured by music?

greeting Bianca

What is it with "Walk" causing physical harm? The moment that I start to sing "I'm learning to walk again" seems to be the moment that I lose my footing. Gravity: I fought the law and the law won.

When I got my first car I was air drumming to Iron Maiden and didn't notice a car had stopped dead in front of me until it was too late.

Whenever I hear "can I play with madness" now I think of whiplash.

No of course not! It's a hell of a story to tell, so why blame it on the Foo. Maybe they make the songs to good?

1986, Senior Year in high school...arrived at the first dance of the year after having tossed back a few beers beforehand. Van Halen's Jump was playing. I jumped. Upon landing, my ankle went snap. I hobbled off the dance floor only to look down and what appeared to be my foot dangling oddly and proceeded to freak out. Unfortunately, I had to go to the hospital and it became clear that I was under the influence. Ended up with six months of disciplinary probation and had to put in a number of hours of detention. Going back to school that Monday on crutches was terribly embarrassing.

I've gotten whiplash from head-banging, but that's about it.

Now that you mention it, concussion #3 occurred when I slammed my head in a car door because we were late for a concert and the broken foot in July happened while the Foos were on my iPod.

I am gonna show my age on this one............

I was about 12 years old, and on a vacation in Florida with my best friend and her family. I was in the bathroom when my friend announced that the hotel had MTV. I was so excited that I ran around the corner, and slipped and fell and busted my ass. So I guess I can say I have been injured by music. This was when MTV first came out



Yeah, MTV USED to be cool.......

I just remembered another one. While waiting to turn into the venue for a FF show in Chicago (the last tour), my car was rear ended. I had a chest contusion from the seat belt.
