You really gotta give this dude credit. Granted, he couldn’t even get through a solo performance without bat flipping into a glass window, but he never abandoned the song upon learning of his demise. Much like the dudes playing the violin as the Titanic plunged into water, there is some honor is going for one last whack at the tom-tom before bleeding out in front of everyone. If they called this dude back on for an encore and he played Annie Lennox’ “Walking on Broken Glass,” I’d buy this bands entire discography.
Also, if I may, I’d like to make a few comments on the production value of this video. I know it’s petty and unnecessary, but my God. Did the drummer write this when immediately after he woke up from his coma? Christ.
It seems to me that if one were to capitalize one phrase in the above assembly of words, it would probably be “FALLS OUT STORE GLASS WINDOW.” That, to me, seems like the most outrageous part. The point in the song bares no consequence on his broken bones.
You have a spoiler alert on your own damn video.
So it’s confirmed, you’re not even trying.
P.S. Don’t you get it, we kind of want him to not be ok. I actually couldn’t think of a better way to die.
