Was just playing my guitar and a sneeze totally screwed me up. I felt it coming n thought "Im gonna play through this" but that just didnt happen. Surely this must happen from time to time. My question is: Have you ever seen this happen to someone famous while on stage?

They also say it's impossible to sneeze while licking your elbow. I haven't done this; maybe they're right.

Hey man I just checked out your band and I dig your stuff. If you had an EP or something I'd consider buying a copy.

Anyway, don't sneeze just as you're about to pull a cone either.

if i sneeze when playing, i usally just anticipate it coming and direct my playing so that i can hold a bend or do something like this (A-9h10p9h10p9h10.....) until i compose myself again.

it usally works unless, its the odd occassion where the sneeze nearly blows my face off
and i make a big noisy mess of notes followed by something similar to those
"*insert good guitarists name* shreds" videos on youtube.

They also say it's impossible to sneeze with cotton in your mouth and nostrils. Maybe they're right.

I've heard that all concious brain activity stops while sneezing because of the air pressure or something like that...In which case, it would be impossible to play through a sneeze.

That theory gave me an awesome idea for a torture machine.

Okay, so you know those metal clips that they use to hold your eyelids open? Well get some of those, and attach them to someone's eyelids. Then, you make them sneeze, one way or another, be it with pepper in their nose or whatever the hell you want to do. The sneeze will cause them to close their eyes, tearing the eyelids.

signatures are budget.

That won't work.

The MythBusters have proved this wrong. They've sneezed with their eyes open several times, and nothing happens.

But the immediate impulse is to close the eyelids, thus making his machine viable.

I love to hear that, but at the same time, kinda gets me down... cause my bands broked up I think...


We don't talk much anymore, but there hasn't been a definite "We're not a band anymore."


But the torture machine I don't think would work... wouldn't your eyelids just slip out of the eye clipper things? I mean, if your eyelids were like legit fused or had an adhesive on it to stick to the things, then maybe...


but why?

Whats wrong with you guys? I can sneeze and piss at the same time. Am I a multi-tasker?
