#1 Most rated story (overall)
#2 Most read story (interview)
#4 Most read story (overall)

In the "Best Guitarist Ever" poll (which is the #1 most voted poll at Tinfoil),

Hey Everybody,

I wanted to take a moment to answer everyone's questions about my recent wrist injury and thank everyone for their support and well-wishes...
As much as I'd like to embellish the story, the truth is I slipped and fell when I arrived at the hotel in New Orleans at 5 am. I went straight to the hospital and the X-rays confirmed that I had fractured my wrist in 2 places.
Talk about a guitar players worst nightmare!
Fortunately, the orthopaedic doctor I saw was wonderful and after discussing the possibility of doing irreparable harm to my wrist, we decided the safest option
was to fit me with a cast.
 I decided not to cancel any shows, but agreed to take it easy on the windmills...
And as long as you guys are willing to tolerate a few bum notes now and then,
I'm willing to give it my all every night. Thanks again for your support.
