guitar thrasing
 
any famous artist that do it on a regular basis? i have footage from chronos smashing his bass.
and on the cunning stunts dvd there's footage were kirk's guitartech explains the axe is glued togethere so that it can last for like 3 shows.

i still think its dumb, but hey, thats probably because i cant afford it :D
opinions?

I pretty sure Dime does, or did. In the home videos he breaks a few. The guys from kiss do it as well.

But if I got guitars from a company I would start breaking them on stage.

BLS 2004-03-17 15:51

Dimebag just did that so he could repaint it and make it different. Ive never seen him do it live on stage, and i dont think he has. I dont see many people do it and im glad, because i dunno how any musician can just smash their instrument. Dosent make sense ot me..

MetalMilitiant 2004-03-17 16:14

if i got guitars for free and had the liberty to smash them, id probably give it to some kid in the audience

HELLBLASTER-666 2004-03-17 16:27

I know Nirvana smashed their instruments at their concerts and
I think the drummer from The Who used to smash his drums.
To me it doesn't seem senseless but I don't think
I would do it.

its sensless destruction of a perfectly good (and expenisive) instrument just to look cool. If they can afford a new guitar every show, why dont they just give it to someone that could actualy use it? I sure as hell could use a good axe!

I've seen him play with the head stocks broken, and if you read some of the "updates" in guitar world for Damageplan, he said after they recorded a song they listened to the song, drank some, and broke the guitar he played it on.

KB_CANS 2004-03-17 16:58

Yeh the broken headstock was an accident, and he breaks his shit offstage. He dosent break shit onstage to be "Cool". If i had a instrument i didnt want id sell it or give it to a kid who would use it NOT sell it. Theirs plenty of aspriing musicians out their who cant afford a guitar.

xdislexicx 2004-03-17 17:38

with as crazy of a stage presence i might in my band, i still would never purposely break a guitar. if it was an accident then i'd just be pissed and try to get it fixed or buy a new one. but how many times can a band smash their setup before it stops being 'cool'?

BLS 2004-03-17 18:09

Well apparently forever. Nirvana was able to sell tons of records and stupid people acually thought they had talent, all because they smashed all their shit like the typical angst filled teen that there music was marketed too.

Undying_Hatred 2004-03-17 18:55

it wasnt only the drummer from the who, who smashed his drums, the guitar player smashed his acoustic too

brainsforbreakfast 2004-03-17 19:48

If musicians smash their instruments, would a vocalist kick his own ass?
Probably a dumb post, but since mosts musicians see their instrument as an extension of themselves, to me that would be like thrashing yourself

on a ironic sidenote, i would like to see a "badass" band like slopknit thrash their instruments and not enough dough to buy new stuff

BeastOfCarrion 2004-03-17 20:04

doesn't kirk hurl a guitar into the audience in the Cunning Stunts video?

personally i think its all well and good to give a guitar to someone, but i wouldnt want one to be thraown at me .... it might hurt

Comfortably_Numb 2004-03-17 21:08

i've always thought "why would they smash that when i'd glady take it."
But if you've ever been drunk and smashed something, you can understand.

If i was in a band, i'd throw out a coupon for a free guitar. then i'd destroy mine. make em feel better.

Fetal Injury 2004-03-17 21:29

yes id like my free guitar please :D *flashes coupon* thanks a bunch

they would just trash their mic or mic stand, why would they kick their own ass?

What, you guys never heard of "Honky Tonk Man" from the old WWF?

He used to smash his guitar as part of his performance. Of course, it was usually on someone's head.

Def 2004-03-18 09:59

lol, what the hell is that? ^

I don't care about it, but I wouldn't do it myself because I get reminded of Nirvana, I don't want anything to do with those cunts.
