Finishing a set while you're injured during the performance is one thing, but finishing while you're having a stroke is just something else. According to Kerrang!, Korn tribute band Korn Again played the Rockstock Festival in Stockport when drummer Alex Headen suffered a stroke mid-song. Headen says he originally thought he was just dehydrated or not feeling well, but things pretty quickly.

“Never in a million years did I think I was having a stroke. I just thought I had low blood sugar or was dehydrated. I thought, ‘If I get through this song I can grab a fizzy drink or a bite to eat and carry on. I started the show fine but by the fourth song my vision started to go blurry, then my left arm went numb and I dropped my drum stick. I carried on playing with just my right arm but then I completely lost my vision in my left eye. The song finished and I collapsed on my drum kit.”

If you're easily disturbed, maybe don't watch the video. We wish Headen all the best in his recovery.
