Rock & Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Gene Cornish of The Rascals collapsed on stage during a performance in Montana.
The 74-year old was transported to a healthcare facility. There was no immediate report on the status of his condition.
According to Jody Grant, programming and marketing director for the Alberta Bair Theater in Billings, the medical personnel utilized a defibrillator and delivered CPR on Cornish before he was transported to a healthcare facility. Cornish was performing with Rascal organist Felix Cavaliere.
Both Cornish and Cavaliere completed the first song of a concert and Cavaliere started to play one of the 1960’s hits of the band, “A Beautiful Morning” when Cornish collapsed on stage.
