What makes collapsing on stage metal? The fact that he didn't stop playing until after he hit the ground; that's commitment. Also I realise it's an old video, but I just found it.

There's very few metal videos out there that I sit back and smile at. This is one. Not in a bad "I'mma laugh my ass off now kthnxbai" way, but just of pride. Heat is a son of a bitch, and the fact that he was that worked up on stage just shows the energy the band has.

of course, there's the video, the video of Phil throwing a punk causing trouble at a Down show out after making him appologize on his knees, and Watain beating the fuck out of a hardcore dancer that stupidly got up on stage.

It wasn't because of the heat he collapsed, he has a rare heart condition and sometimes his heart won't pump enough blood through his body and he'll pass out. It's happened a number of time throughtout the years, and I think it speaks to Machine Head as a band that they don't kick him out for it, which is awesome. I loved Machine Head before I found that out, but I gained quite a bit more respect for them after finding that out.

See now, I didn't know that. I though it was just from the heat. huh. Good to know.

That's crazy. At first, I thought he was just going all out and fell backwards.
