With people asking if this happens often. Guitarist experience getting shocked a lot from microphones while playing guitar. I've heard numerous guitar players/singer complain when I played with some about this issue. However, never to this magnitude. Glad he's OK.

It Isnt reported often but honestly it is. Many people have died due to grounding issues in PA systems... It's kinda fucking scary when you consider how many different live sound set ups musicians endure in different parts of the world where quality is not always the first priority.

I was at this show. Was fucking scary as shit. He grabbed the mic to talk into it, acted like it stung him, then kinda slowly, bewilderedly collapsed onto the ground. He was onstage for a few minutes before the other members could hoist him offstage.

I wonder if this means they're good for the show tonight ?
Did anyone else play? What time did NFG go on? I have tickets for tonight if its still happening.

Wonder if the show tonight is still happening, I have tickets to it so it would be nice if they would let us know. Glad Chad is alright

Is it a hole-in-the-wall of a venue?

I've been shocked bad enough to knock me down. Nothing hospital-worthy though.

Hopefully he got some SUPER POWERS out of it!

I was there last night, it was definitely scary to see him go down. Really glad he's ok, safety first. Huge props to the rest of the guys for coming out and trying to do it as a 4 piece as well. But my friends and I were a little annoyed because in total they only played about 13 songs, which is rad, but you know they cut the set short. We payed $35 a ticket to see em (which is a lot considering its chain reaction) and feel we got kinda screwed. I understand why they left early, and I don't blame them for it, but I hope they do something for all the fans that took time off of work and came to see them play half a set without a lead guitarist. Maybe another show for $10 or something for the same ppl that went last night to give them the opportunity to see the full set. Idk, maybe I'm just being unsympathetic or an asshole, but I feel like I got robbed.
