Sorry to hear that mate, I saw the picture on FB, looks like the bass guitar hit the bullseye smile.gif

All kiddin aside, never happened to be to get seriously hurt on stage, and it's not something I would wish for anyone. While we're on topic, here's an old one smile.gif

Yes it was definitely full contact !! The first thing I wanted to do was punch the bassist, even though it wasn't his fault ! laugh.gif

Would you be able to do that at the gig? I'd prefer your own safety than putting a bloody metal show!

i always cut my hands playing live, it's like in the joint of the finger and the nails ahh it BURNS after some songs, also the part of my arm that hits the guitar body, i always get like burns there for the friction + sweat.

but besides that i'm fine onstage, we are a 3 piece band so each one has their own space.
