Billings, Montana — A theatre official says Rock & Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Gene Cornish of The Rascals collapsed on stage while performing in Montana.
Cornish's publicist, Melissa Kucirek, said Saturday she didn't yet have an update.
Jody Grant, programming and marketing director for the Alberta Bair Theater in Billings, says Cornish and Rascals organist Felix Cavaliere had completed the first song of a concert and Cavaliere began the second when Cornish collapsed.
Medical personnel treated Cornish on stage before he was taken to a hospital.
