Recent food poisoning to blame for Leonard Cohen collapse on stage in Spain

One of my favorite Kids in the Hall lines – they were a comedy troupe from Toronto – and one I use often is that the music of Leonard Cohen is the soundtrack for hell (or something like that).

But I wouldn’t wish food poisoning on anyone.

BBC News reports the 74-year-old singer is recovering after collapsing on stage during a concert in Valencia, Spain.

Cohen was taken to hospital as a precaution. He has been discharged and is said to have had food poisoning.

A band member told the crowd Cohen had suffered stomach cramps and vomiting fits.
