Evick says Michaels returned to the stage, telling fans he couldn't continue performing. Evick says when he went to the band's bus to check on Michaels, "he could barely speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans." On Twitter and Facebook, Michaels thanked paramedics who helped him. Michaels has had more than his share of health problems lately: He's survived a brain hemorrhage, had a warning stroke, and needed heart surgery to fix a hole in his heart.
