In an interview with Men’s Health Magazine, Canadian ambassador to the world, Chad Kroegar was asked to tell the interviewer a crazy story from his past, allowing the Nickelback frontman to regale us with a rock ‘n roll tale of voluntary genital mutilation.

“We’ve always been very close to our crew, 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 favourite 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…. Oh god, I forget the exact amount. 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.”

Thanks for that, Chad.
