November 28, 2008
April Wine lead singer Myles Goodwin was hospitalized in Montreal on Friday, after he collapsed on his way to the airport.
“He arrived at the airport, collapsed and hit his head,” guitarist Brian Greenway, who was travelling with Goodwin, told CBC News.
While Greenway said that his colleague appeared to be doing better after initial treatment and undergoing some tests, he added that they were still awaiting further details.
“We’ll have to wait and see what the doctors say.”
The band had been heading for Nova Scotia, where they were to play at a sold out concert marking the 25th anniversary of Halifax radio station Q104.
The Canadian hard rockers, who originally got their start in Halifax, had been set to surprise fans by bringing original bandmembers Richie and David Henman onto the stage.
The show will go on, however, with a tribute to April Wine. Halifax-area rocker Joel Plaskett has also been added to the performance lineup.
