Smashing Pumpkin man Billy Corgan collapsed on stage during a gig in Florida last week, though he isn’t entirely sure what caused him to black out. After falling over during the show, Corgan tweeted later that night: “That wasn’t a stage move or clumsiness; that was me blacking out and wiping out”, before adding: “I have no memory of falling against the drum riser and my guitar cabinet, but I can tell you I’ve got quite a good bruise [and] am moving slow”.
