Tim Farriss, the guitar player for INXS, severely damaged the ring finger on his fret hand in a boating accident recently.
This has led to speculation that he will never play guitar again, properly, at any rate. I don't know if that's anything worth a comment, but here goes. INXS were largely finished long before the untimely demise of Michael Hutchence. They maintain a following, to be certain, but their careers ended when the 1990s began. They have been on a slow, steady decline since 1987, to be cruel about it.
Having said that, it's never cool when someone has something taken away from them. Now would be a good time to figure out how to learn to play the guitar with a disfigurement and see what happens from that.
