Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir collapsed on stage in New York last week while playing with his side band, Furthur. Though his people are chalking it up to a “strained shoulder,” video footage shows him barely standing and he looks like he’s about to topple over the whole time.
After defying gravity for a few minutes, he finally hits the deck. Strangely, the band just kept on playing, though I suppose when you have played with Jerry Garcia you get used to this sort of thing.
Crewmembers rushed onto the stage and put the rickety Weir in a chair to finish out the song, though he again began to list to the right. According to the NY Daily News, eventually he was escorted backstage where he sat (slumped?) out the rest of the show.
