Gin Blossoms star collapses onstage

WENN

Gin Blossoms rocker Bill Leen stunned fans at a concert in New York over the weekend when he collapsed mid-song.

The hitmakers were playing at The Paramount in Long Island on Friday night when the bassist fell ill and dropped to the floor in the middle of their performance of "Hey Jealousy."

The incident was captured on tape and obtained by TMZ, and in the video Leen can be seen receiving assistance from a stagehand.

According to the website, the 50-year-old refused further medical attention and a representative for the group has since put the health scare down to "exhaustion from the road."

The rocker bounced back and was back onstage the following night at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J.

He was drinking heavily before he collapsed. I was not there myself but a close friend of mine was and saw the whole thing........

This must be the wrong article, it said a star collapsed, i was thinking something other than the bassist of a washed up band from the 90's.
