In certain situations, wearing protection does more than just keep your equipment safe and unharmed. It can also improve your performance. Take Cleatskins for example.

Despite producing back-to-back #1 records in the early 90s, Texas-based heavy metal band Pantera didn’t survive long enough to garner the acclaim that Metallica and Slayer enjoy today. Extreme metal began receding back underground & then guitarist Dimebag Darrell was murdered by a deranged fan. That ended Pantera.
