July 5, 1989

On July 5, 1989, British pop singer, Rod Stewart, performed a move usually reserved for heavy metal head bangers. At a performance in Pine Knob, Michigan, while singing, Stewart cut a corner too closely and banged his head into a light fixture and knocked himself out. Cold. The stage crew had to come up onto the stage and carry him off. But being a trooper, he did return and finished the show. When Ozzy Osbourne heard about the incident, he muttered, “Sharon,” and then said, “at least he wasn’t bending over to tie his shoes and hit his head on the coffee table. It’s why I go barefoot in the house now, SHARON!”
