Can't remove high E from tuning peg

So I was messing about today on my guitar and the high E snapped. Problem is, it snapped right at the tuning peg leaving no extra string to tug or pull on to remove the many loops of string around the peg.

Anyone got any solutions to get the string off?

Get some pliers and try to pull on the string wound around the peg. Obviously use your best judgement about how hard you pull, but that will hopefully loosen it up and get the string out of the head.

Did you really have to make a thread about it?

Doesn't anyone use "logical thinking" anymore?

Nope. About half these threads could be solved that way though.

This place would be dead without them and each one provides a good attempt for a witty response.

Anyone can be a guitar tech with a screwdriver and needle-nose pliers, I swear.
