I hope he's okay. Not fer nothin', but the band member in the background looked as if he were thinking Cripes, not again, as he put down his guitar before going to help.

Me too. His music was rock opera/progressive rock style , very creative. Good to hear he is doing well. He may have to reduce touring a bit though for his health. It was hard to watch him fall down like that, you could tell he was fighting it also. Tough and talented man.

I tried searching that and multiple alleged reasons.

Perhaps the most telling was a quote from a 2003 interview with him: "Names and ages **** me off. So I just continually lie."

Well, considering how big he once was, I can't help but see that headline more like ........ ".....collapses the stage.....".
