fairly self explantory. Personally I never have, but the guitarist in my band fell off his amp and broke his wrist, fortunately it was the last song of our set.

I tripped on my amp once. But I didn't injure myself. I was more afraid for my amp/guitar than myself.
Need fashion advice?

Multiple times, me, the other guitarist and bassist used to hit each other (by accident) with our instruments as we go crazy like Dillinger Escape Plan

EDIT: worst injury for me would be my chin and head got cut, lots of blood.

I bust my lip on the microphone every time we play in the last song. Not sure why, it's probably pretty thetrical, cos I bleed like an idiot.

Plus I fall over everything and grab the microphone too much and cut my hands. I like playing.

No, but my drummer once got really into a solo and accidentally hit his eye. He fell off his stool and moaned while everyone was silent. I actually started to laugh a little because it was a very awkward situation

i actually ripped open my middle finger tip from playing bass on stage. i hadnt played in 2 weeks or so, then we played 2 songs i play bass on, 2 times in 3 nights. first night i had a blister. i superglued it, ripped open and i was bleeding a little bit, had to superglue it again between songs. hurt like a bitch once we finished up. i was drunk and had adrenelin going. i was playing harder than i needed to be, partly cause the amp was low, partly cause i was drunk.

not really. it took away some of the pain, but it was pretty much just the pain from it ripping more open. it was still sensitive. but also it acts like a super callus for about 10-15 mins before it wears off if your playing bass with your fingers on your right hand. it keeps it fromgetting much worse, but once you start sweating and putting alot of friction on it, it will crack open eventually. its good enough to get you through a show, but dosnt solve the problem and it still it sore.

it dosnt sting or hurt putting it on though. the actual bassist in my band did that for a week when he started playing with us since he hadnt played slap bass in a long time and shredded his hand the first few practices before calluses built up.

The mic is was singin' from bumped on my nose, cause we had this really big mosh pit, and the pit slammed my mic, it was embaressing at first, but because I was in the middle of vocals, I just kept on going.
