Rock isn’t dead. Rock ‘n’ roll will never die. Because rock doesn’t just live in the hearts of the famous musicians that played it on stage in 1972, a dying breed, or on the radio in the 80’s and 90’s… rock lives in the heart of the 15 year old girl who was born 25 years too late to ever see her favourite band play live, who listens to their records every night in her bedroom and stares at their posters pretending she was there. Rock lives in the heart of the 65 year old grandpa who plays the Beatles’ White Album to his grandchildren for the first time and watches as a new generation of rockers is born. Rock lives in the hearts of the musicians playing in tiny clubs across America to 50 people a night who will never stop rocking even if they have to work a day job for the rest of their lives. Rock ‘n’ roll will never die as long as there’s at least one person, somewhere, who doesn’t just listen to it with their ears, but with their heart and soul. Rock is immortal.
Clint Malarchuk mere moments after having his jugular vein severed during a game on March 22, 1989. The wound was closed after 300 stitches and he avoided becoming the third NHL player to die from an in-game injury
One of the trainers had been a medic in Vietnam, and was able to hold his jugular closed until he could receive treatment.
Easily the most intense moment in sports history.
More about this:
"Many spectators were physically sickened by the sight. Eleven fans fainted, two more suffered heart attacks, and three players vomited on the ice."
"It wasn’t like it took a half hour.. it took seconds. It was like someone flipped a full bucket of blood off a table, it all just appeared in seconds."
shit like this makes me scared to leave the house
A very special moment for us last night when we met Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page is still our hero. (via)
