Rock News of the Day
While shooting an episode of ‘Carpool Karaoke’ for The Late Late Show, the Red Hot Chili Peppers experienced a life threatening situation that didn’t make its way on air. During a pause in between takes, a mother began screaming that her child couldn’t breathe. Everyone rushed over to help, and the lady thrust her baby into Anthony’s arms.
He decided to try infant CPR, but couldn’t open the baby’s mouth in order to perform true CPR.
“So I started rubbing the belly, bubbles came out of the mouth, the eyes rolled back into place, the ambulance showed up,” he said. “I handed the baby over, who was now breathing.”
— Meat Loaf was rushed to hospital last night after collapsing on stage during a show at the Jubliee Auditorium in Edmonton. He was singing “I Would Do Anything For Love” when he slowly leaned down then fell over on his back.

— Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page was testifying during the third day of the Stairway to Heaven plagiarism case in Los Angeles when he stated that the chord sequence for the beginning of the song had “been around forever”.
