Lightning Strikes Sunset Rubdown
2009-09-07 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 16 Comments

Sunset Rubdown bassist Marc Nicol narrowly escaped with his life recently after being struck by lightning.

Nicol, a.k.a. The Nuc, blacked out and his heart stopped beating after being struck. He recalled: "My heart started back up after the electrical shock. I woke up feeling like I was suffocating and was delirious. Then I passed out for an hour, woke back up and saw the hair singed on my leg. Only then I knew."

Nicol has suffered no long-term effects from the incident, but he has inherited an absolutely insane scar:

whoa. this may sound stupid, but i'd love to be struck by lightening if i got that scar, plus, it's a really cool story. So long as the lightening didn't paralyze me or anything more damaging than some temporary pain
