Every Time I Die won’t make you sign a waiver if you enter the pit during one of their shows, but do so at your own risk anyway: guitarist Jordan Buckley might accidentally spit beer into your eye, as he did to a woman at a recent show.
The women went to the doctor when her eye was still bothering her the next day, and although the doc said her eye was just fine, diagnostics turned up a brain tumor!
Thankfully this story has a happy ending: the tumor was caught early enough that surgery to remove it was successful, and the woman is now fully recovered. If Buckley hadn’t spit beer into her eye it’s entirely possible she wouldn’t have known about the tumor until it was too late.
Buckley himself narrated the story of how he found out about the most fortunate beer-spitting incident of all time in a series of tweets, which you can read below. The moral of the story is… yeah, I really don’t know what the moral of the story is. Always go to the doctor when something’s wrong, I guess?
A lady came up to me and said “I saw you guys a little bit ago, and you spit beer in the air, and I was in front and some got in my eye.” I apologized. Said our shows get wacky, never know what’s gonna happen. I was probably just trying to mimic someone way cooler than me...— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
She said the next day it was still bothering her. And she thought her eye was infected so she went to the doctor. I apologized 10 more times. Braced myself for a lawsuit...— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
So she went to the doctor. They did tests. Doctor said she didn’t have an eye infection, she had a brain tumor, but they caught it early enough to perform surgery and remove it...— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
She said it never would have gotten caught had she not gone in. She then thanked me for saving her life.— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
Point being... if you come to an ETID show, it could save your life.— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
