Rich Cronin of LFO bailed on a headlining gig this weekend claiming he was sick -- but it may be a load of crap!
We're told Cronin threw a fit after we reported how much scratch he was making for the show -- and that may be why he canceled. An official statement from Cronin -- who's a cancer survivor -- claims "Rich's health issues prevent him from being able to participate ... there is no situation which could be presented which would even remotely mitigate the physical risk posed by his participation."
But then we were told something completely different ...
Instead of canceling the fest after Cronin's bow out -- Jeff Timmons of 98° and the organizers decided to make it a free concert to save the show.
