In news sure to send Rock Band storming off to their bedroom to pout, Guitar Hero rocked this guy so hard his bones turned to dust! Actually, it wasn’t the game so much as his attempt to transition into the rock stance / guitar throw combo in the middle of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Texas Flood. An attempt that failed, epically.
“We were neck in neck in points…I had to do something special. I needed STYLE points. I breathed deep, my rock meter was maxed out and I was going to make this audience feel it. I twisted to the right and threw my guitar in the air! Instead of a roaring audience I heard a loud snap! My knee slid to the outside of my leg and my leg bent sideways as I fell to the ground,” recounts Jimmy on his site, GuitarHeroBrokeMyKnee.com.
In true friend fashion, several concerned onlookers opted to call him a pussy rather than an ambulance as he writhed on the ground in pain. Yay for friendship! Hit up his website to view some nasty surgery pictures, leave a message of hope or read his open letter to Red Octane.
