January 20, 2010 - CHRIS BRODERICK CUTS THUMB ON RIGHT HAND WITH BOX CUTTER
how many times have you been told safety first? I always felt like I was being nagged, but now I am the one advocating safety. Last night I was breaking down boxes to put in the recycling bin, and the unthinkable happened. I cut my thumb on my right hand with a box cutter (razor blade). Instantly I knew I needed to get to the emergency room to make sure I hadn't cut my career along with my thumb. Luckily I didn't cut any tendons and will only have to lay off the guitar for a couple weeks. If you are squeamish at all don't look at the pictures
Here was the initial cut, at least a 1/4" deep
The handy work of the surgeon
I feel very lucky that I could take this picture(all is well that ends well), hopefully you guys will take notes from my mistakes.
P.S I'm bummed I didn't get to play with my brothers at the NAMM jam. I was told no one in Megadeth was playing and decided not to go to that party. Needless to say I missed out on a great time.
take care, Chris.
