If you were in any doubt that Diesel is Australia's quintessential rock guitarist, check out his account of when he smashed his front teeth out... with his own guitar!

"I did a gig in Sydney... and it was a really sweaty gig. I went to get it off me and the guitar went SMACK into my face..."

Not that losing his teeth made Diesel give up that guitar. "It didn't stop my love affair with that guitar. It was just showing me who's boss."

Legend.
