I need to know about at least one or more musicians that coped with a seemingly career breaking injury. Tony Iommi lost the tips of his fingers yet he still continued playing and Rick Allen (drummer for Def Leppard) lost one of his arms in a car accident yet still manages to play.

I need at least one more example of something similat

Django Reinhardt.

The great gypsy jazz musician had two of his fretting fingers paralyzed from injuries sustained from a caravan fire. He played lead with two fingers and rhythm with half chords and stuff.

Django Reinhardt. Had his fingers burnt and still played. Inspired Iommi to keep playing after he lost his fingertips.

Jerry Garcia... I think lost a finger.

Do that youtube guy who has no arms and plays with his feet

Alternatively Jeff Healey, lost his vision at 8 months old and went on to become a successful rock and blues guitar player.

Died last year of cancer aged 41.

Johnny Hiland. He is blind and fat but can still shred your face off and get more poon than you.

He lost his eyes to cancer too actually. Retinoblastoma.

I reckon he had a predisposition in his genetics.

Well ya get cancer at 8 months old and die of it long before old age can explain it, that's generally the explanation I'd expect.

Was he performing a sweep of the area? And did his insurance company tap him for the excess? And did the repair guys really boring playing his car allright?

Yeah...I went there.

Tupac lost his life, but that didn't stop him releasing records.

This is the winner of the thread.
Thread over.

But srsly: Dave Mustaine pinched a nerve in his arm when he fell asleep with his arm over a chair. Had to break up Megadeth and re-learn to play guitar.
GHOST BLOWJOB!
WHOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Not exactly. It healed and he started to play again. When you break your leg you don't have to learn to walk again.

Page Hamilton has to use heavy gauge picks since he has no feeling in his right thumb.
