According to reports posted today, Vince Neil is in the hospital after sustaining a nasty onstage fall.

As reported by Metal Injection, last night, the Mötley Crüe frontman was performing with his solo act at the Mountain Festival in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, when he fell in the gap between the stage and and speaker, and was rushed to the hospital where he was X-rayed. It’s believed he suffered some broken ribs from the fall.

Though not much else is known about his condition, he is apparently awake and alert.

Footage of Neil’s fall was obtained by TMZ, which you can watch below:

Shortly after the incident, Neil’s bassist Dana Strum told the audience, “The truth is Vince fell and broke ribs when he fell. He can’t breathe and he’s gonna get dealt with medically. He was so excited to be here. He lives in Tennessee. But he was willing to stick it out and tough it out when the people back here were telling him ‘Don’t do it.’ Let’s have one good round of applause, please, for this guy.”

Everyone at The Pit wishes Vince a speedy recovery. A fall like that sucks, and we hope he bounces back quickly.
