Fun Fact #110: Pete Townshend impaled

Imagine playing guitar with such ferocity you impale your own hand on your guitar. Astonishingly, that’s exactly what happened to The Who’s Pete Townshend during a gig in 1990. He pierced his hand on the axe’s whammy bar while performing his trademark windmill move. The guitarist recalls: “I looked down and thought, ‘Shit!’” Which is understandable in the circumstances.

Until next time keep rockin'
