Scott Weiland

Plummets Off Stage During Concert

8/26/2010 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland took a nasty fall off an elevated stage in Cincinnati last night -- and it took security nearly a minute just to pull him back up onto the stage.

After taking a minute to regain his composure, Weiland -- like the frickin' rock star that he is -- picked up right in the middle of the song and belted out the rest of the show.

What? Old rockers found a way to get in the news. Fake a fall off stage or get pushed by a band member. I believe Tila started this trend, be stupid and stay on stage til you fall of or get pelted til you bleed - and BIG HEADLINE NEWS follows!!!!!!!!!

I was exactly right there where he fell.
He continued to sing right away after landing.
He had hilariously shocked face with a giant eyes, but he never stopped to sing. Haha.
I hope tmz is smart enough and won't spread this ridiculous lip-sync rumor.

Yes, it seems like he must have fallen over the lip sync machine. Good thing that did not break or he would have then had to "fake" an injury! Just sayin...

He did this exact same thing here in Grand Rapids MI last Thursday. I don't think it was an accident, but the response was pretty cool

I was at the show as well. I have been to this venue several times as I have a family member who works there and assists with the production. After he fell, I found him and asked him if they had a back track and he said "no they had live mics tonight." So take it for what it's worth.

We were on the VIP tour yesterday in Detroit (Thurs Aug 26) and it was Eric's drum tech that led it. He actually commented on Scott's fall and explained that there was a gap on the stage which was not properly marked which is how Scott fell. IF you notice, he was just walking and then took a unsurprised fall..... he didn't see the gap which should have been marked with flourescent tape....... we were 2nd row dead centre in DEtroit last night and Scott appeared to be very healthy.... everytime something happens people always assume that he's high or it was something stupid that he did... cut the guy a break... he was very professional... you try a stumble like that and see what the effects are. Way to go Scott!!

Doesn't anyone notice that he's LIP SYNCING? His voice never stops - even when he's fallen into a crack!
