Drum Corps horror stories

Recommended Posts

Joel "Lothar" Magnuson (sp?) passing away on the field during Kilties 05 prelims performance at DCA.

In a way, I'm glad SoCal Dream didn't make the full corps trip that year...I don't think I could've handled that if I'd been at the show.

I did a search but couldn't find it, but wasn't there a corp that supposedly ran out of money while on the road and the members were abandoned and had to find their own transportation home? But then I think I remember a staff member writing that it didn't exactly happen that way.

Whatever happened to him? Was that his ageout? Did he march again/still marching?

His age-out is this year. He is attempting to march, but last I heard from him, he's still having problems with the leg.

October 1993 I was in a bad car accident, snapped my femur in half and shattered a vertebrae in my neck as well as fracturing 2 more. 3 months later (and a mere 2 weeks after having the HALO device removed from my head) I was at Colts audition camp. At the time, I was still walking with the use of a cane to support the hip-to-knee metal rod and 3 screws in my left leg.

I left the cane at home and auditioned playing and marching to earn my spot. Where there's a will, there's a way! :thumbup:

You left out the Knights...

Yep. Good call. Was probably a nightmare for the Crossmen as well.

He's an assistant drum major this year I believe. He had trouble marching again and was in the front ensemble but they moved him to like third or fourth drum major

I think it was Cap Reg 06 that had like 30 people go to the hospital during a rehearsal day in Kansas? I think Cavaliers gave them some food?
