Apparently while filming a new music video, Sonic Syndicate’s bassist Karin Axelsson was hit in the head with a guitar, causing a laceration and a concussion. The irony is, the scene they were shooting involved the band being murdered by a woman with a guitar.
But don’t worry, she’s alright now.
“Wow! That was one weird experience. What should [have been] a fake kill for a fun video clip nearly turned into a snuff movie.
“I did not know what was going on. I thought I’d be lying there and then someone would shout ‘Cut!’
“When I got hit, I was surprised and shocked at the same time. But I guess my boys were more scared than I was, haha…
“As of now, I still got some serious headache, which sucks and I really don’t know if am gonna be able to play that next show with the band ‘cuz I am feeling dizzy all the time — but [you can rest assured that] I will try everything in my power to make it happen!”
What did I tell you? Men get smacked in the heads with guitars all the time, and they walk away with hearty laughter and beers in their hands.
In all seriousness, I’m glad she’s okay and I hope her recovery continues to go well!
