Our main man Jimmy Buffett was released from a Sydney hospital Thursday just one day after reportedly losing consciousness after taking a header off the Hordern Pavillion’s stage on Wednesday night. Evidently, he took the weather with him but left his crash helmet on the sea plane.
The 64-year-old singer did a face plant extraordinaire according to witnesses and ended up unconscious with a big gash in his cranium. Bystanders said the genius behind all things Margaritaville was unconscious for five to ten minutes before paramedics arrived to the scene to transport him to the hospital.
On Wednesday night, reps for Buffett released a statement via his website that he had been “released from the hospital and is doing well.”
But according to a report from USA Today, Buffett will need a few more days to recuperate and was even forced to cancel a show this Saturday in New Zealand.
His rep told the paper that he “just needs some time to get better.”
Buffett released a video thanking folks for their well wishes and saying he’s on the mend. To see the video, click here.
