Phil Demmel accidentally nearly scalps stagediver at Vio-Lence’s reunion show in LA

Posted by on June 3, 2019

A fan got more than he bargained for while stagediving at Vio-lence’s reunion show at the Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA Friday (May 31) when he was accidentally nearly scalped by guitarist Phil Demmel (ex-Machine Head). 

Demmel posted a video of the incident to Instagram Saturday (1st), captioning it with the words “My yard…” According to the video, when the fan got on stage, his hair got caught in the headstock of Demmel’s instrument. One big tug upward and the fan was back on the floor sans a big chunk of hair that was left on the guitar.

A photo of the aftermath was also posted to Demmel’s Instagram with a caption that jokes, “And the award for most hair assembled in a headstock goes to…….”

Vio-lence are currently in the middle of a string of reunion dates. The band has already played shows in Oakland and Los Angeles, CA and Mesa, AZ and will next head to Belgium for an appearance at the Alcatraz Hard Rock and Metal Festival August 9-11. On November 8 and 9, the band will head to New York for two shows at Brooklyn Bazaar with Ache opening on the 8th and Zombie Apocalypse opening on the 9th.

Of the band’s latest reunion, drummer Perry Strickland told Mosh Mag in April:

“I think we really just want to play together. Have fun, go back to some really, really old-school basics. Mr. Rockstar over here [Phil Demmel, guitar] has probably done everything on the face of the earth. I’ve had my little stints, and I think, for us, it’s just a matter of getting back to playing, having fun, a lot less stress, throw the stuff up onstage and try to have some fun because some of us who haven’t played in 16 years still make mistakes… It’s just about having fun and laughing it off and trying to get back to having a good time, and we seem to be achieving that. We’re just going to enjoy that, and what happens just happens.”
