Joe added that Steven looked badly hurt the night of the incident. "When I saw him walk by he was bleeding pretty bad, but apparently hedidn't do anything internally that they could find, no concussion," Joeexplained. "He hit his head pretty bad. His back. [It was] basically [like] abad bar fight and someone had a baseball bat."

Joe told another radio station that Steven would be "sorefor a while," reported"I've seen him fall off a stage more than once," Joe told Chicago's97.9 The Loop. "I've fallen off...stuffhappens."
