Smash Mouth singer Steve Harwell collapsed on stage whilst performing in Illinois on the weekend.


The 49 year old singer was taken away in an ambulance after collapsing on stage.

The Californian band continued the set without the singer, performing classic’s including the hit single, The Monkees cover “I’m A Believer”.

In the fan video below the crowd obviously didn’t miss the singer, loosing their minds on nostalgia over the song made famous by the Shrek film.

Watch the video below:

The band have not reported on what caused the singer to collapse. Rumours are the singer was drunk.

Our thoughts are with the singer and hope he returns to his ‘all-star’ status real quick.

JUST IN: First Look At The Lemmy Statue In Hollywood

The legend lives on


The heavy music scene is still in a state of mourning over the loss of Motörhead singer, Lemmy Kilmister.

The music legend who he defined rock’n’roll, he has been immortalised with a life sized bronze statue placed at the iconic Rainbow Bar and Grill, Sunset Blvd, Hollywood.

The statue was unveiled in a ceremony at the Rainbow Bar and Grill 24th August (LA time), attended by rock’n’roll royalty, Lemmy’s family and fans who travelled across the world to attend the event.

#motorhead #lemmy #hype #rainbowbarandgrill

Texan born artist Travis Moore nailed it, with every detail that of the rocker, including the customised cowboy boots and mole on his cheek.

A common sight at the legendary bar would be Lemmy, cowboy boots on, sitting at the end of the bar with an endless supply of ‘Jack and Coke’ (now re-named The Lemmy) and playing the electronic game machine. 

The only time he wouldn’t be there is if he was on the road, touring with Motörhead.

Although a hugely popular rockstar, his down to earth, real persona is what really touched those who met him.
Dave Grohl, Slash, Ozzy Osbourne just a few muso’s who were deeply saddened by his loss.

Triple M’s Jane Gazzo had the pleasure of meeting the legend in 2002, saying:

“Do they come any more rock than Lemmy? He not only played rock, he was the total embodiment of rock and roll. Lived and breathed it.
I met him at the Metal Hammer Awards in London around 2002. He smelt of bourbon and leather and was a gentleman.
There'll never be another quite like him.”

There is talk of a bar opening in tribute the the heavy rock band called, Motörhead Bar and Grill, that will include memorabilia of the band and personal items of Lemmy’s.
