Drumming is stressful but not usually dangerous. Unless you're on a morning TV show where the host has to throw an axe that is!
A Fox News host was supposed to throw an axe at a very large bullseye only a dozen feet away. But somehow he missed and the axe sailed over the target and flew right into the drummers arm.
Thankfully the axe only left a couple of cuts along his arm and he is now "focusing on full physical and emotional recovery."
I was hit by an axe while performing a drum solo live on National TV.....words I never imagined saying! This happened last Sunday and I have been reluctant to post but starting to receive inquiries from concerned family and friends. I am thankful to God that the double sided blade only hit broadside on the outer elbow with significant impact and a couple of cuts as it fell along my wrist. It could have been much worse or fatal. Focusing on full physical and emotional recovery.Posted by Jeff Prosperie on Saturday, June 20, 2015
