Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland is nursing a bruised ego after taking an embarrassing fall during a concert in Ohio on Wednesday.

The rocker stumbled and fell off an elevated stage at Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center while he was singing the band’s opening number, Crackerman.

Security rushed to his aid spent almost a minute trying to pull him out of the frenzied crowd and back up onto the platform.

The rocker took the tumble in his stride, insisting on continuing with the show and waving off requests for medical assistance.

Unfortunately, the footage of the stage fall will live on – a fan caught the slip-up on camera and posted it online.
