As stories of rock history go this is pretty impressive. Taken by the movie ‘Johnny got his gun’ the heavy metal band composed the song ‘One’ and used clips from the film intercut with the band playing to produce a video that has received an awesome 63 million times. ‘Johnny got his gun’ left an impression on me when I saw it in my early teens. It is shocking. It is the kind of thing a boy dwells upon lying awake at night, or head immersed floating in the bath eyes shut. What would it be like if advanced in medicine were able to keep you alive after injuries such as these?
