Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan blacked out and fell onto his drummer’s kit during the band’s live performance in Tampa Bay, Florida, on Wednesday night. The 43-year-old alt-rocker was performing the Pumpkin’s 1995 hit ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings’ when he lost consciousness.

“That wasn’t a stage move or clumsiness, that was me blacking out and wiping out,” he told his Twitter followers the next morning.

He says he has no memory of stumbling back onto the drums and his guitar cabinet, “but I can tell you I’ve got quite a good bruise [and] am moving slow.”
