  • Raccio writes: During the concert a guy jumped over the barriers and hurt himself. He just couldn't stand up cause it was quite painful, so some other people from the "security" arrived with a stretcher to carry him away. While they were putting him on the stretcher SY finished a song, Kim noticed immediately and told it to Thurston who put his guitar down on the ground and jumped right off the stage to check the guy's condition. He said something to him, gave him a "high five" and returned on stage. The guy was simply ultra-delighted, like he hadn't hurt himself at all. On stage Thurston simply stated "rock & roll beats pain!" and the audience started with a big applause.
