American musician Vince Neil best known as the lead vocalist of heavy metal band Mötley Crüe suffered broken ribs after falling off the stage at a concert in Tennessee, United States.
In a viral social media post Neil can be seen clapping at the edge of the stage with his guitar strapped around him before his fall.
That explains why I lost track of him in this video. I apparently captured the fall at the end of this clip. Totally agree that he looked great and was singing great. Hope the X-rays are clear and you bounce back quickly @thevinceneil pic.twitter.com/jfWT6c3rVb
