Jam Band Pioneer Bruce Hampton Dies on Stage

http://music.blog.ajc.com/2017/05/02...e-fox-theatre/

Most here will have no clue who this guy was but he was instrumental in many careers in jam band circles, he checks out during the end jam of his 70th B-Day celebration. I always thought this would be the way to go if you are a true rocker and I could see Mick Jagger strutting around in a stadium and his heart giving out. Go to the 6:30 mark if you want to see how this thing plays out, it is really incredible.

(Videos are now down)

That is simply horrifying. No song is that important that someone couldn't have checked on him or possibly given CPR.

That being said, I'd never heard of the man.

Are these stupid hillbillies really this dumb?! The man is lying face down on the floor and hasn't moved. There are 50 freaking people on stage and not a single one thought...geez, that's not normal for a man to be face down and not moving, maybe I should check to see if he's ok. If that poor man had any chance to survive, he was robbed of it by these morons.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Agreed with Auggie. If that's how I lived my life, that's the way I would want to die.

Looks like all the videos are being taken down...

Also looks like him laying down on the stage was part of his act and that is why the musicians played on.

Hmmm - I guess I'd have to see footage of him doing that to get a better idea.

That's how Dick Shawn died - fell out right on stage in the middle of his act, and everyone laughed applauded wildly for several minutes. Of course, for comedians, you're more likely to expect them to fall over dramatically, especially since it was Dick Shawn.
