For some reason, eye injuries and eye pain give me the creeps. Like, the worst way for me to go would be to fall on a stick that just went straight through my fucking eye, out the back of my skull.
I’ve had pink eye, and hated it. I scratched my cornea twice, and it fucking sucked ass. I get something stuck in my eye, and it ruins my day. Eyes. I am sensitive to them.
It’s why I feel for Australian metalcore band The Amity Affliction’s drummer.
His name is Ryan Burt and sustained an eye injury while performing at Warped Tour earlier this week, requiring immediate surgery.
Just got the willies merely writing that last sentence.
Glass Cloud drummer Chad Hasty will be filling in for him on the remainder of Warped.
The band claims that “a piece of his drumstick chipped off going right into his cornea which caused a cut and required immediate eye surgery.”
That blows a hard one.
Speedy recovery to you, Ryan. Enjoy the eye patch while you can.
