Several people have sent me links to this unusual video and I wanted to share it with all of my readers and clients! This well-known country music star, Eddie Adcock, was asked to bring his banjo into surgery in order to discern how part of his brain were functioning during hs brain surgery! This is truly a rare an amazing clip! Enjoy!
