Jimmy Buffett recovering after fall from stage




Jimmy Buffett is recovering in an Australian hospital after taking a tumble off the stage at his concert in Sydney on Tuesday night. It seems the poor guy hurt his parrot head when it clanged off something pretty hard on the way down.

TMZ has video of Jimmy, 64, walking toward the end of the stage during an encore and obviously misjudging the distance, crashing to the floor face first (watch it here). He got a cut on the head andwas knocked unconscious, waiting 10 or 15 minutes for paramedis to arrive before being taken to the hospital, sources said.

"The doctors say he is doing well and will be released tomorrow," Buffett's rep said in a statement on his website. "More info as we get it, and thank you for all of your well-wishes!" It looks like Saturday's crowds in New Zealand may ahve to hang up their Aloha shirts for at least a little while.
