    I never really knew what it is? Is it a degenerative disease? I guess he'll have to wear the neck brace from now on. It must be something bad because I'm sure he would have had surgery to correct it if it were possible. I'm sure somebody already talked about this and somebody is gonna hammer me for rehashing the same shit, but oh well, who gives a shit. I never heard it the first time.

    You know how some guys lift their children onto their shoulders to give them a ride? Well, small children. If so, that's how he did it. He accidentally herniated a disc in his neck. If I'm not mistaken, he only wears the neck brace while playing so he doesn't damage it again. He takes a lot of beatings. Understandbly paranoid, I guess. He broke his arm when a piece of ceiling fell on him during a soundcheck last tour. The beatings are almost as hard as his drumming! Anyway, that's how he did it if I understand correctly.

    You know KWS, I heard that Al was in a car accident and never went to the doctor? For reasons unknown but that's what I heard how he buldged his disc. Just my 2 cents I guess ...

    I heard that he strained his neck by changing gasoline price signs at Shell.
