Ornette collapses

Slightly alarming news from the Bonnaroo festival at the weekend, with the collapse of Ornette Coleman. Apparently, it was a the combination of the 100 degree heat, Coleman's 77 years and his insistence on wearing a suit onstage.

He passed out, and although he came round quite quickly, he still went off to hospital for a quick once-over. He was released without the need for an overnight stay, which is good news.
