J U: You were electrocuted in 1976 in Lakeland, Florida. Was that before or after you wrote “Shock Me?”
A F: Before; that inspired [“Shock Me”]. That’s something like Paul and Gene don’t even talk about because they don’t want me to get any press about it. And that was a big thing—I almost died. It was a pretty traumatic experience. I mean, I had burns on my fingers. I was knocked out. [My then-wife ] Jeannette was there and I think she had a premonition about it. It was very weird.
Were you any different after you were electrocuted?
I don’t think so. A few days after I was nervous, because I remember reading that … some guy got electrocuted and he died two days later. So I’m saying, am I going to die two days later? Because that was a bad shock.
Was it painful?
Yeah. I mean, I knew it for an instant and then I blacked out. I woke up behind the amplifiers. I said, “I can’t play.” Then the fans started chanting my name and I finished the show. But I had no feeling in my hands. I don’t know how I even did it. I guess it was all *adrenalin. (source)
