    The drummer of an American disco group suffered a heart attack and died mid-show during a performance in Brazil over the weekend
    Brad Parker was performing with his band Generation Esmeralda in Uba, some four hours north of Rio, on Saturday night when he suddenly slumped over his kit and then tumbled off his stool.
    Video cameras caught the horrifying moment, as the 59-year-old's bandmates initially kept playing, apparently unaware that Parker was in trouble.

    Or die in a bizarre gardening accident. Or choke on someone else's vomit. I wonder if Scotland Yard has the ability to dust for vomit now.

    Maybe he thought they were about to bust into Kool & The Gang's "Get Down" and was just really into it?

    OK, kidding aside, that sucks. Prayers for his family.
