How many head bangers get dementia due to it? They've been around for a few decades.

probably drug related dementia. It was probably drugs that made him bang his head back and forth, or just he felt like he had to to get famous. Jerking your head back and forth like that continually will cause brain damage, which would be a TBI event. A few times doing that will not usually hurt. Just not all the time.
