I had to post this quick when I saw it...from gamedaily.com's video game horror stories...
GUITAR HERO HORROR!
Starring: Jimmy Winter of Omaha, Nebraska
The Plot: After coming home from a late-night Thor concert, Jimmy decided to rock out with his favorite video game--Guitar Hero. Little did he know, he was about to embark on a long, pain-filled journey that would forever leave him scarred. Trying to out-do his roommate during a two-player shred-off, Jimmy threw his guitar controller into the air. Instead of hearing the roar of the game's fake crowd, he heard his knee pop. After several X-rays, and an MRI, Jimmy discovered, to his horror, that an inch and a half of bone had snapped off his femur during Eddie Van Halen-esque move.
He was laid up, and was tended to by a nurse who described herself to Jimmy as his "number one fan." Then she "hobbles" him with a sledge hammer. No, wait... The real story is, after months of recovery, including being strapped into a machine called a "Legasus," Jimmy's horrific experience serves as a cautionary tale for all of you out there who are about to rock. "I may slow down on the high kicks," he says, "but you just can't take the fake fans and fake jamming out of my soul."
