The Legend of the Nickelback Fanboy

Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, who’s recently become engaged to Avril Levigne, told Men’s Health the story of how, long ago, he got the band’s drum technician to do something unthinkable: “We’ve always been very close to our crew,” he said, “so we’ve had a lot of fun getting them to do silly, stupid things that could possibly cause them to hurt or injure themselves in some way. We were in Germany years ago – this was one of my favorite stories – and we were just bored. There was a heat wave going on in Germany. In a back room in the venue where we were playing, there was an old fan with a metal blade. I don’t remember the last time I saw a fan with a metal blade. And we paid the drum tech – I think we got the pot up to about 600 deutschmarks – to stick his johnson in the fan. He took the money. I can still hear the ‘bleh-bleh-blehhhhhhh’ of the blade slowly sputtering to a stop, and this blood-curdling scream. It was fantastic. Somebody has video footage of this somewhere that needs to be resurrected and shown at the guy’s next birthday party.” (via starpulse; via dlisted)
