Speaking of Moz, he may have canceled his Jimmy Kimmel appearance tomorrow b/c the Duck Dynasty "cast" is on the same taping.
Closer to a meltdown in the literal sense, but I'll never forget the lead singer of Thursday. It was my first Coachella (2004), and the hottest to date... the guy vomited a few times, then completely collapsed on stage. He was out for a good minute or so, til his bandmates and staff revived him. He pulled himself back up and the show went on... the guy was a trooper. Can't say I like the music much, but mad respect for that dude.
EDIT: Apparently he was having an allergic reaction to some medication he was taking for epilepsy. He wasn't vomiting - he was coughing up blood. After he was brought back to his feet, he refused to quit, saying: "We’re going to finish this set. It’s such an honor sharing this stage with bands that I’ve admired and have influenced us so much. The Cure, The Pixies, Radiohead, Kraftwerk … I apologize for my voice, but we’ll finish this set." Pretty impressive - I wish more artists held this attitude toward Coachella.

Saw this quote. Should make for some interesting main stage action if he opens for them Sunday.

“I’m forever near a stereo saying, ‘What the fuck is this garbage?’ And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers.”
