Weir's Collapse

Postby mkaufman » Thu May 09, 2013 11:47 am

Sorry - just playin' catch-up as I was away.

I've seen the videos of Bobby falling down, however, I came across this video which is definitely different.

Looks like he almost fall down on another night too?

Apparently if there's no sound there's no copy right infringement. The video's with sound are being removed.

I found this pretty alarming and sad. Word from the band is it was because of a pulled shoulder? Yeah, right.

That is no pulled shoulder. That is a stupor.

I dunno - have you ever been prescribed a muscle relaxer? Those things sneak up on you and knock you out.

Friday I took a Percocet and a Zanaflex(muscle relaxer), then climbed up on my garage roof and shingled. I did not collapse.

Dude! LOL! A couple years back I tore my adducter and associated muscles on my inner right thigh doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The doc prescribed a muscle relaxer he told me I should be able to function on (internet programming at that time) while working at home to recuperate. I could NOT take one and function - they knocked me out like a sledgehammer. Your mileage may (and obviously does) vary.

It's ironic that Jerry was the one known for being "messed up" (especially during the mid 80's) yet I never heard of him "falling down". He even played well during those eras. His worst playing was in the late 90's and that could have been due to his health issues rather than the other.

"What were your thoughts when Bob Weir collapsed onstage earlier this year?

That other stuff aside, when something happens to one of the guys – these are my friends. My friend Bobby was going through some serious stuff. But he's out on the other side of that now."

Sorry. Didn't mean "late" 90's. I meant the last few years of his life. I guess that's "mid" 90's?
