"Umm, why is my phone lighting up today??? I appreciate the attention but I'm totally fine. And Knoxville we will rock you tonight full tilt!" - Billy Corgan

Billy Corgan

"Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan collapsed on stage during a gig in Florida on Thursday night.

During the band's performance of 1995 hit single Bullet With Butterfly Wings, the star fell to the ground.

Writing on Twitter later that night, the musician said: "That wasn't a stage move or clumsiness. That was me blacking out and wiping out."

The 43-year-old, who said he was bruised by the fall, gave no explanation for his collapse." [BBC]

Smashing Pumpkins play a sold out show at Terminal 5 on Monday. Video of last night's collapse, and other recent tour videos, below...

wtf? that was the lamest shit ever. I'm mean it's great that he is fine and that he didn't really collapse (just kind of fell for a second and got back up).

Who goes to see Billy Corgan concerts? Lame.

Yikes! Hopefully he can still kick it for the rest of his tour.

I think 43 is not really old. My cock will ram through plate glass and tends to fill younger vaginas with my seed. My seasoned, affluent, secure, mature, seed. I poach hipster chicks and fill their mouths with cum every day. Rage on.

Is he banging Tila Tequila now...?

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2010 5:06 PM

He had too much tila tequila. Plus I'm sure his snazzy fashion sometimes just knocks him over.

it's just too hot in florida

perhaps he collapsed from heat MEHxhaustion

He probably fell over because that side of the stage had too much suck.

he probably suffered from pigeonshit OD

WTF? whats wrong with people? His music is great! I went to his latest concert and he ROCKED as always! there was a lot of young people there, which means that the band had NEW people who like them. THEY STILL ROCK in other words. PS he clappsed sining bullet b4, in the 90's. So he's not getting old, its due to the screaming he does in it.
