Doctors: Concert headbanging causes patient's brain bleeding
kirotv 7 ^ | 7-7-2014 | COLLIN RUANE

Upon investigating, doctors found the man suffered from a subdural hematoma, or blood clot in his brain. As to how he got that? Well, headbanging at a Motorhead concert four weeks earlier, the doctors said.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine says common causes of the subdural hematoma are long-term alcohol abuse, head injuries and frequent falling. Not surprisingly, headbanging didn't make the list.

Surgeons removed the blood clot from the man's brain and released him from the hospital six days later. CBC notes, as many other news outlets have, that this reported injury is extremely rare.

Headbanging. Is there an Obamacare ad for that yet? That's a lifestyle choice, right?

Could there be a business opportunity in selling hard hats at headbanging-occasions?

That’s dumb looking. Someone could design one to appeal to the headbanger demographic.

1. Did he hurt his Obamafone when banging his head?
2. Was his welfare card damaged when he fell?
3. Hopefully, he did not lose any of his many democratic voting registration cards in the fall.

Quiet Riot already informed us of this:

Well I'm an axegrinder piledriver
Mother says that I never never mind her
Got no brains I'm insane
Teacher says that I'm one big pain
I'm like a laser 6-streamin' razor
I got a mouth like an alligator
I want it louder
More power
I'm gonna rock ya till it strikes the hour

Bang your head! metal health'll drive you mad
Band your head! metal health'll drive you mad

headbanging at a Motorhead concert

Motorhead is still performing???? They were an establish heavy metal act when I was a kid. I think the bigger risk at a Motorhead concert at this point is that someone will inadvertently pull the tube out of their oxygen tank, or run over someone's foot with their Jazzy.

I’ve never heard of “headbanging.” What does it involve?

And sometimes we have the added benefit of them removing themselves from the gene pool.

LOL at your Post #11.

When I read the article, my first thought was “Aren’t those guys all in the late 60’s by now?”

And yep, according to Wikipedia, Lemmy Kilmister is 68 years old.

Lemmy is one of those 0.5% or less of people who can essentially subsist on drugs and alcohol with little major physiological damage into relative old age.

LOL! And, if you look at pictures of him now vs 30 years ago, he looks pretty much exactly the same. Which I do not know if that says more about his appearance now, or then! But there it is. He is a stamp collector too.

Seems to me that this guy would be an excellent choice for the Democratic nominee for President in 2016. By then, with a little more head banging, he should be as qualified as Clinton or Warren.

Here's a good example, courtesy of Angus Young:

Lemmy is proud to admit he trys to remain apolitical, but his values lean Libertarian.
