Re: Bob Weir Collapses on Stage
I'm sort of amazed that he fell flat on his face and the rest of the band kept going without missing a step.
....and then they played FOR TEN MORE MINUTES before they ended the song.
The show must go on. Back in the day, the fellas kept playing in when Jerry couldn't make it through a set w/o sneaking offstage for a bump.
Two things come to mind: A) their gig started as a jug band, basically a barroom entertainment. If s#%t happens, dodge the bullets, but KEEP PLAYING!
... and B) These guys never stopped playing, despite many a musical trainwreck; why would they stop just cuz 1/6 of the band fall down go boom?
Seriously, I hope Bobby is fine. He looked unbalanced from the git-go in that video... and I agree; that ain't your normal stance for dealing with a shoulder pain.
