Injuries have hurt (and sometimes helped) bands throughout history. They have caused bands to get replacements which have been harmful or beneficial to the bands success. Which band do you think suffered the most and benefited greatly from an injured member?

Oh an be sure to check out today's lesson - Mate covers awesome pentatonics in the style of Doug ldrich, of the band Whitsenake who was affected by a guitar injury.

Twisted Sister's first hit "Under the Blade" was written about an operation their guitarist lived through.

When I read the topic I inmediatly thought of Tony Iommy, who injured his fretting hand but kept playing nonetheless and is one of the most famous guitarists in the world despite that accident smile.gif

So I guess this is not exactly on-topic, but I guess just wanted to praise good old Tony wink.gif Anyone can become a great guitarists if they put enough effort!

Def Leppard, with a drummer who lost an arm in an accident they still managed to struggle on with Rick Allen by the drums.

EDIT: Ooops, he wasn't a guitarist

Django, he manages to play extraordinarily well even after the terrible fire accident. Les paul also. Dave of Megadeth was once told he could never play again but he got through it.

Django Reinhardt lost many fingers in a burning caravan. Few years later he made outstanding songs with only 2 fingers on his fretting hand.

Hm...tough question!
I know that Yngwie once broke his wrist (I gues due to his other hobby...fast cars) and changed his picking technique a bit after he recovered to be able to play as fast as before.
I also thought of Tony Iommi. I think Gilby Clarke (ex-GNR) also broke his wrist in a motorcycle accident once, but managed to play again.
Then of course I have to think about James Hetfield, who burnt his arm on stage. The roadie had to play guitar for the rest of the tour. I once saw a Metallica documentary on TV and James said: " So if you are a roadie, better learn the songs cause you might end up on stage".

Pantera did suffer from the greatest injury of them all. sad.gif

Alright, that wasn't really the point, I guess. Dominic Frasca is one of the great players who just trained too much (14 hours a day or so) and had to take some years off.

Praise Tony indeed smile.gif He even downtuned his guitar so he didn't have to press down so hard to fret the strings. That defined their sound alot and influenced so many others.

Django Reinhart made his whole career with just two fingers on the left hand!

Well you guys have already covered lots of good suggestions here... one that springs to mind as it's current is it will interesting to see what Morbid Angel's new album will be like, as their superhuman drummer Pete Sandoval will not be on it due to having back surgery....

I think RHCP suffered a lot with the death of Hillel Slovak. But at the same time they gained a lot with John Frusciante. So it's a weird situation. With Hillel they would be much more unique and original but Frusciante brought them commercial success.
