Billy Corgan collapsed on stage (but is fine) (video)
“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
“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]
