Rocker injured after burning his hair at a gig

A young follower of an extreme cultural movement has set his own head on fire, performing a risky trick during a rock concert.

He succeeded in impressing the audience, but failed to smother the fire quickly enough. As a result, the bold – though perhaps foolish – youth from Sterlitamak, about 1,700 km east of Moscow, received second and third degree burns, he claims.

The hot-headed youth may have had his burning ambitions for exhibitionism extinguished for the time being.
