I Hope I Die Before I Fall Off the Stage

Steven Tyler
It is wrong of me to have laughed at this AP story, but I did and I am sorry.

STURGIS, S.D. — A hospital coordinator in South Dakota says Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is being brought there after reportedly falling off stage during a concert.

Rod Brandhagen, hospital coordinator at Rapid City Regional Hospital, said Thursday morning that Tyler was on his way there.

According to the Rapid City Journal, Tyler fell off the stage as the band was performing the song "Love In an Elevator" in Sturgis in western South Dakota.

Tyler was helped backstage after the fall and was taken to the hospital after being evaluated by medical personnel.

God, I hope he'd just gotten to the hilarious, drawn out "going down" part.
