professional guitar players who have snapped a string at a critical point of a song at a live concert?

Joe Satriani snapped a string at the G3 Live in Tokyo show. He started the song over so they could use the whole song for the DVD.

They do it all the time. Luckily they have people who'll immediately bring them a backup if that happens (Well, the rich ones at least). Personally, I've seen Dave Grohl snap one.

When i saw QOTSA in february josh broke a string right before the solo in little sister, he made a joke of it but then done an awesome solo just after, started making jokes about van halen and started tapping.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Stevie Ray Vaughan did that when he was playing Cold Shot. There's a video on youtube but I'm not gonna bother looking for it.

I'm sure all of them have broken strings on stage during important parts before.

Matt Bellamy snapped a sting at the beginning of plug in baby and blamed it on the guitar tech.....
I have a theory that it was that high pitched voice of his that made it shatter
" Did You know, in Tibet, if they want something, do you know what they do? They give something away."

"Do they ? That must be why they're such a dominant global power."

John Frusciante does. If not then his fingers are probably bleading.

Its always either the string or him...

Hendrix broke a string during Red House at Woodstock, but he kept playing for like three minutes.

I personally don't know what to do for people who break strings, I couldn't break one if i tried. I put on a set of gloves one time and bent my high E across and off the fretboard and it didn't break.

eric clapton got his nickname "slowhand" from when ever he broke a string during a concert, he'd restring it right there and then.

At least that's what my guitar teacher told the class.

He can be dumb sometimes.

Like he thought Van Halen invented tapping.
Honestly. Wtf?

There's a video of vai breaking a string just before his solo in a jam. He just improvs something and compensates for the detuning with his trem.

There's a clip of the bassist Victor Wooten playing a song and one of his strings (I think it's the A) snaps and he just transposes the full thing over and keeps going.
#14
He didn't break a string but the lead singer/guitarist of Black Stone Cherry had his strap break while he was in the middle of a song, so he just played in upright on his knee till the end of the sond

I saw Buddy Guy Break a string, and he just sort of slapped the broken strings against the other ones to sort of play them before he gave the string to some one in the audience and a roadie brought out another guitar.

It was the G. I can't find the video, though

I went to see Foo Fighters and the Birmingham NEC and Dave Grohl snapped a string on his acoustic during a song.

A funny thing he said that night was, while talking to the drummer about them to getting together "If I weren't gay!"

Needless to say we all had a chuckle or two.

Jimmy Page broke a string during the Stairway to Heaven solo in the Song Remains the Same movie... He continues the solo further up the fretboard on the string above it without hesitation. Skill.

When I saw Napalm Death the bassist broke his strap button out of his Warwick so tied the strap to the upper horn of the bass using a Tescos bag. The singer said "I've never seen that done before!"
