Multiple witnesses tell TMZ Gallagher was doing his famous sledge-o-matic routine when he fell backwards onto the stage. We're told his eyes were closed and he was shaking.

Doctors -- who happened to be in the audience -- rushed on stage and straightened out Gallagher's arms ... and waited by his side until the ambulance arrived.

Oh, no. Was just thinking about him recently. Hope not a heart attack. If so hope he's ok. Use to love watching him smash watermelons.

I met him in a grocery store in Wildwood, Nj before a concert while he was buying fruit. What a prick. told everyone to back off "don't you see i'm working". Lost alot of fans that day. Still-hope he's going to be ok

OMG, LOL! This is the funniest post of the night. I needed something to break the tension of the Charlie shakedown. I hate being out of the loop.

So the doctors ran on stage and straightend out his arms. Great work guys. How many years of medical school does that take? I think I can swing it.

God bless him. At least he was fortunate to have his collapse in the city that calls the Mayo Clinic home. I hope he will be OK.
