I can’t even smash a guitar right

Filed under: Comedic Genius,Video Clips — Drew Johnson @ 10:33 pm

Here’s the video I mentioned yesterday. This was on April 21st, 2001 at the CD release party for Invention of the Wheel. My buddy Joe Yurko gave me his guitar to smash on stage. I was elated. I will prove once and for all that we are the coolest band around. How often do you get to see someone smash a guitar in person? Not often enough…and not on this night either. Psyche! I was able to beat the piss out of the stage but that’s about it. I was mortified.

The club owners asked me if they could have the guitar. I figured what the hey, it probably still plays perfectly fine goddamit. They took the neck off and it is still to this day used as the handle on the front door of the club. That’s pretty cool. I was honored.

The copy I have only has sound out of the right channel. I don’t know why. Sorry. It’s not really about the audio anyway.

  1. Drew, you are a golden god! Leave it to you to give it that subtle twist. Hell, ANYBODY can bust a guitar (Hendrix, Townsend, etc- that’s so “been done”) but NOBODY is known for busting a whole in the stage with a guitar! As always, a true innovator…

  3. I guess it was late. I think I meant “hole” in the stage…

    By the way- I love the little move at the end where you just kind of drop it in disgust.

  4. Nice vid. That’s ok. I hearit happens to every guy once in a while. You’re the second local guy I’ve seen try it and the second to fail. I think it’s all the clay in the soil around here.
