Florida, July 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan collapsed onstage on Thursday night. The incident happened during a show in Tampa Bay, Florida.

The band was rendering the song – ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings’ which was a major hit in the year 1995, when suddenly the frontman collapsed onstage. Some people in the audience thought that it was a planned move by the star and was a part of the act.

However later the 43 year old Billy Corgan cleared the air on the popular social networking and microblogging site Twitter and he said that, “That wasn’t a stage move or clumsiness. That was me blacking out and wiping out.”

He also added that he didn’t know the reason behind the fall and that he had simply blacked out and then his legs buckled under him and soon he was flat on the ground. He also divulged that, “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”.

Despite the fall, which might be due to exhaustion, the band is all set to perform on Friday in Tennessee.
