Though it may not be quite as badass as the condition that befell Slayer’s Jeff Hanneman, Torche guitarist Andrew Elstner nevertheless has experienced his own unique vermin encounter. It seems as though a bat has urinated in his eye. According to Pitchfork:
When Elstner turned on the lights he discovered a trapped and frightened bat, zooming around. “As it passed by my head a fourth time at light speed, it managed to piss on my right eye.”
Though apparently rabies is never transmitted in this fashion, Elstner has still begun rabies treatments.
