The gossip website stated that the star, who hasn’t performed with Motley Fool since 2015, “had a few songs on her set when she stepped on the edge of the stage, and then suddenly fell 4 feet onto the cement.”
Sources added to the publication: “He was clearly in pain … his crew thought he had broken some ribs.
“His roadie and a security guard helped him get back on his feet, and Vince went away with a limp.”
It is believed that L.A.-born Vince was “alert” and was awake when he was taken away by emergency services and later X-rayed.
Who’s the crew?
Looks like Vince has run out of luck when it comes to his own show.
On May 29, Neil performed his first solo show since the pandemic as the headliner of the Boone River Valley Festival Iowa.
Several reports and videos suggest that Neil’s vocals were not as well-advertised as they were before.
During Helter Skelter’s cover of The Beatles, it appeared that Neil could not hit the notes and was forgetting the song.
When the band reached their 14th show Girls Girls Girls, Neil dropped off the stage.
“I’m sorry, guys,” he told the crowd. He said, “It’s been a long time playing – my voice is gone. We love you and we hope to see you next time.”
He did not comment on the incident.
Vince was discovered while performing with his band Rock Candy and joined the Motley Fool crew in 1981.
After more than 10 years with the band, he missed band rehearsals due to his drinking habits affecting his performance.
He continued his music as a solo artist before reuniting with the band in 1997.
