Leonard Cohen Gets Food Poisoning in Spain, Collapses on Stage







Leonard Cohen, who is back on the road after a long sabbatical from the stage, collapsed while performing in Valencia, Spain Friday night. According to the BBC, Cohen fainted during "Bird On Wire" forcing his band to stop playing in order to tend to him, a member telling the audience that the poet/singer was suffering from vomiting fits and stomach cramps. After a short stay in a hospital, Cohen was discharged and is expected to perform this evening, his 75th birthday, in Barcelona.
