Beck @ Firefly Fest (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Beck

ABC 7 reports:

A man is in critical condition after he fell over a stair railing at the Fox Theatre [in Detroit].

Police say two intoxicated men were leaving the Beck concert, when the victim told his friend he was: "going to take the easy way down."

That's when he fell over the railing on the fourth floor. Officers believe he fell 30 to 40 feet.

Police say they don't know if the man was trying to slide down the railing, or was so drunk he thought he could simply jump.

Beck's tour continues in NYC today with shows at Hammerstein Ballroom and Central Park Summerstage. We recently caught Beck at Coachella and Firefly. He plays XPoNential Music Festival in Camden later in July.

This drunken asshole will turn around and sue the venue.

He was probably enturbulating Beck. All that bad entheta comes out in ironic ways on those silly Wogs!

If there's one thing a narcissist really hates it's being ignored.

^ Why do you keep saying that?

apparently last night, the opener cancelled and beck did a solo, acoustic set beforehand. hopefully he will do that again this evening.

2:14 is trying to search for the most advanced words in the online thesaurus, because he thinks that'll somehow impress someone enough to comment on it.

The guy must have thought sliding down the railing feels better than stroking his tiny dick.

4:50, I think those are scientology terms bc Beck is a scientologist

Your comments should be saying that you have him in your thoughts and prayers not bashing him !! This was a horrible accident and you all should be ashamed of your self for being so heartless !!

Posted by Wow | July 1, 2014 10:50 AM

This man thought all about his family when he got loaded and performed reckless behaviors? Fuck off with your misplaced sanctimony, friend.

^ dumb as fuck right there

Posted by Anonymous | July 1, 2014 1:08 PM

I cannot believe so many people can be so heartless . This man a wonderful person and is not someone who is careless this was an accident and. Accidents and laps of judgements happen. All of you should be ashamed and realise that people
Make mistakes but no body deserves this . He is in critical
Condition and it's amazing he has survived we should all be sending nice Positive thoughts not negative ignorant messages . All of you who wrote this shit will be very unhappy in yourlife and I hope you never experience anything like his family or friends have . You're all assholes

Listen here you worthless little pions. How on earth can you bash some poor guy who has just had a horrific accident and is currently fighting for his life? How fucking shameful. I guess you have never been drunk and taken a silly risk? It could have happened to ANYBODY. He is a good friend of mine and truly an amazing person. If you were to meet him you'd be sick with yourselves for writing that hateful garbage about him. He has a wife and son and mother who absolutely adore him and who are currently at his bedside wondering if he will live, and if he does live, they are pondering what kind of permanent brain damage might remain. You evil fucks think the internet is a place of no consequences; a platform to spew your bitter hatred anonymously. Well think again: there IS a thing called karma, and its is most definitely gunning for you lowlifes. Anyway, say a prayer for him, that he pulls through, redeem yourselves and you just might have a shot at being happy in this life; cruel behaviour only brings misery to those who exert it. And if you wont say a prayer for this good man who had a tragic accident, then just go kill your fuckin self cuz the world has no room for monsters like you. :)

I hope this guy recovers as no one should die at a rock concert, but friends and family should stear clear of BV at all costs if they are seeking consolation. Actions have consequences.

May all obscenity cease...
I went to that Awesome show & remember Beck expressing a loving concern & caution for the balcony crowd as his fan base can become passionately enthralled!!* I being one of them understand this* :) ironically & sadly... There was a fall... but not from the balcony side. Alcohol can really screw up a good time :/ I know all about that too. I'm so sorry this happened to you Dude. Get well. Play him a low soothing dose of Morning Phase... I will be praying for him... Peace*
