Neil Young and Crazy Horse were halfway between Oslo, Norway and Gothenburg, Sweden when their 2013 summer tour came to a premature end. Crazy Horse guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro was headed downstairs from the top level of the band's double-decker bus when they hit a little bump on the road. He grabbed onto the doorjamb with his left hand, but he didn't realize that his road manager was about to close the door. "I actually felt the door slightly squeeze my fingers," says Poncho. "I was thinking, 'Hey, what's that?' He also felt it, and thought something was obstructing the door. So, he re-opened it and slammed it shut with all his might." Poncho fell to the ground screaming. "When I looked at my fingers – from the tip of the fingernail to the cuticle – they were pointed straight up in the air," he says. "They were just smashed to death."
