to those who may care: MY SHOULDER!

#90088 2 years, 9 months ago
some of you already know about this. hell, some of you had to help me out with various stuff throughout the tour because of it, thanks again brothers and sisters!

here is a picture of me hours after dislocating my shoulder inside badlands nat'l park. yeah, i had the audacity to go back and finish my visit. this was 2 days before the west coast tour started, what a way to begin huh?

anyways, when i got back from tour i got into a physical therapy program because my shoulder and arm were screwed from sitting in a sling for 2 weeks hitting 13 furthur shows across the western US. with enough work over the past month it's finally back to full range of motion, no pain in any activities.

You are such a wimp, that dude in 27 hours cut off his arm to see Phish.

I'm sure you already posted it but how did you dislocate your shoulder?

ignorantly walking off the path at badlands for a great photo opportunity. no photo, just a shoulder out of its socket.

lesson learned: it may be fun to walk off the path, but it sure is dangerous

So you are back to spinning the bass like Victor Wooten! Sweetness. Glad to hear the arm is back to full function.

Glad to hear your 100% again. It would have ended touring for a lesser man. Keep on trucking and see you in San Fran .
