Yngwie Malmsteen: Ouch... I would not like to be that guitar roadie
Yngwie Malmsteen threw his guitar across the stage, and the stage hands guy failed to catch the guitar. I carefully watched frame by frame, and it definitely landed on the headstock. That was easily a 7 or 8 foot vertical drop. OUCH! Yngwie has thrown his guitars around thousands of times, and he's even broken guitars on purpose before. This definitely wasn't on purpose. These kinds of falls usually cause a cracked neck which is a major repair job. I took this video at the Royal Oak in Detroit May 2, 2016 with the Generation Axe tour.
