    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.
    Roadies and medics eventually rushed the stage and Parker was taken to a hospital, where he died on Sunday, a producer for the group told local media.
    "Doctors performed all the emergency procedures but unfortunately there was no solution," Sergio Lopes said, according to Agence-France Presse.

    Video of the show caught the tragic moment and was later broadcast on Brazilian media.


    Parker's body was flown back to California earlier this week.
    Generation Esmeralda is a disco act formed by former members of Santa Esmeralda, which had its heyday in the 1970's.
    “To Dispell All rumors and hopefully re-focus intentions to the family I am deeply saddened to report that during our concert in Uba Brazil last night, we lost our friend and brother Brad Parker to a fatal heart attack. Please exuse my feeble attempt to express our sadness over this tragic event. There simply are no words,” the band’s singer Jimmy Goings wrote in a statement on its Facebook page.
    “He died doing what he loved best,” Goings wrote.

    At least he dies doing what he loves best...clutching his chest in pain.

    They took the show must go on too far, at least the male dancer at the end is a little to flustered to act like nothing is wrong.

    Is the drummer NOT supposed to lay his face down on the drumset?

    Is that a problem?
