Gin Blossoms Bassist OK After Collapsing In Mid-Performance
January 21, 2013 at 11:59 AM (PT)
GIN BLOSSOMS bassist BILL LEEN collapsed while playing a concert at THE PARAMOUNT in NEW YORK last weekend -- which was caught on tape and posted by TMZ.
During a performance of their hit "Hey Jealousy," LEEN stumbled backwards and fell to the floor. A stagehand raced over to the bassist, who appeared dazed and confused when he hit the ground, but regained his senses to refuse medical attention and continue playing.
A band rep attributed BILL's collapse to "exhaustion from the road" ... and a good night's sleep later, LEEDS performed the band's next gig on the following day.
