So what is the worst injury you have ever sustained, and then played your guitar/bass/whatever of choice, either for practice, a show, or anything.

Mine:

Nearly cut off my index finger with a hedge trimmer 1 week b4 i played at a family bbq. got is stitched up, gauzed up, then played a VERY simplified bass part. It hurt like crap.

Now your turn.

sprained my ankle halfway through a rugby game, kept playing.

by the end of the game it was broken and I was in tears.

Umm my hand got bitten off by a zombie. I defeated the zombie and got my hand back and so it back on, but not before getting a major concussion. I then continued to practice my zombie raise and control song. Just couldn't quite get down that control riff.
grok it.

SKREAM!

Listen to jazz, it's good for you...

Ran in a cross country meet with a broken toe and something effed up in my knee.
Never found out what was wrong with my knee, but that was the most brutal 4 miles ever.

EDIT: Shit...I thought you meant "play a sport".

Hmm...
Well...
Uh...
I jammed a finger once.

All of the nerves on my left arm were damaged from a slipped disc in my neck making my arm hurt whenever i struck chords and notes. I couldn't move my arm for 2 days afterwards.

I snapped my collar bone all the way through. I had just started playing. Took the sling off and just went to my lessons and pretended I was fine. Now I have a massive lump sticking out because it didn't heal properly. It honestly looks like I'm growing a second head.

Edit:

I was high on morphine the first time and oxycontin for the rest of the time, so it wasn't that bad. The only plus about a serious injury...

I dislocated my shoulder once. I messed around for a while with the aforementioned injured shoulder, then it popped and felt better. It was by far the worst inury i've ever played with.

You know that scene in Saw IV where the girl gets her ribs torn out after trying to get the key out of the acid? Yeah, same thing happened to me the day before a show. Acid burned off both my hands, and all my ribs were torn out. Oh, and then when we got there, some guy busted my kneecaps with a baseball bat. And then Satan fell out of the roof and raped our drummer. He also shot our singer in the face. Then our bassist caught on fire.
But we still played, we're just hardasses like that.

I never injured myself eversince i played guitar (4 years) except a broken ankle last spring, but about 3 months before i started playing guitar, i bent my middle finger (fret hand) back really far playing football, and now it extends back really far without force, wadduya know...

But my second joint on it sometimes gets dislocated sometimes especially when i do barre chords, so I stay away from them. It's not that big of a deal anymore when it get's dislocated though, i just pull on it, hurts like hell, and back to normal with a little sore.

I was cutting some pork with a steak knife, and i went straight through the pork, and into my finger, and the knife stuck on something for a second, im thinking bone, and then i pulled it out, acted like nothing happened, ate my pork, then played guitar...

That hurt like a mother****er
#30
Right arm snapped in half right above the elbow and the only way I could play was by propping the guitar vertically like a cello on a couple of boxes. Was absolute agony when it fell. It wasn't until the fourth week I could play normally and even then I couldn't play period until the second.

Thank you Twist of Fate. (it feels weird typing that without putting "player.")


Srsly, tho http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMWl4lg_ypc There's a pretty fast solo at the end that he did perfectly with injury. He's the one on the left btw.

"Note: The guitarist and singer, I believe it's Sean, cut his hand early on, and yet continues to play like a madman throughout the performance. His white guitar was bloody by the end, but he never stopped or slowed down. How's that for dedication to your art?"

Holy sh!t that's brutal!!!

I wasn't injured, but with my first band, I played our second show with a sore throat, because I felt like screaming before the show (for fun, we were an alternative band)

I had to play without a penis one time. Actually, I've had to do that every show I've played.

Muscle sprain to my left wrist. It was nearly impossible for me to play guitar.
