Re: Break a Leg
That's pretty horrific. My co-worker was a roadie for some of the biggest MMA and WWF gigs back in the day. The injuries suffered in both, by the events or totally stuff from day to day, were quite intense.
On the big money things he worked in, no names mentioned, docs pumped up stars with drugs in situations where they absolutely had no business getting on stage, including broken bones. The good part of these events were the parties that followed and friendships forged on the road. A lot of what he saw was like the jobs he held as a roadie for rock stars, too but without the snobbery. I told him he should write a book but he doesn't want to get sued talking about either multi billion dollar industry.
