The Nokia incident and the Capitol incident are troubling. If Bob has a medical condition he is not taking care of or just being reckless using alcohol or other substances it seems out of character for Bob.
Perhaps it is simply just a reaction to pain meds for a shoulder injury and tonight he'll be ready. But if this stage breakdown happens again for a third time maybe it is time to limit the touring or just slow down and take care of himself and not get so exhausted?
I went through numerous dizzy/fainting spells in my 30's similar to what Bob had before a neurologist tested me for epilepsy and tested positive. At first the spells were petit-mal siezures, the the grand-mal siezures began. The right medication has kept me siezure free for over 15 years now (knock wood). Then in my 40's I was treated for high blood pressure and the meds I was put on dropped my blood pressure far too much and I had several spells almost exactly like what Bob had at Nokia and Capitol (unstable, foggy-headed, mental confusion, black out, slurred speech, falling...)
I hope Bob does not have a serious medical condition that is causing these episodes and these episodes are non-related and he can enjoy touring for many more years. Whatever the case (neurological, medical, exhaustion, or stupid mistakes with substance using) I wish the best for Bob. If he recovers well from the other night, bounces back stronger, and is happy, that is the best case, but if he needs to limit his career at his age that's ok.
We are all concerned for this man that has given us so much. It was hard to watch the video (couldn't watch the entire video).
I am going to tonight's show in A/C and I really hope to see Bob rested and ready and having fun playing again. There are not many shows in GD history that follow a member's stage collapse like this. Don't really know what to expect.
Have a great weekend everyone,
Peace to all!
