An inquest has recorded a verdict of accidental death on the rocker who died when he leaped from the stage at a gig in Britain and landed on his head.

Patrick Sherry, 29, was performing with up-and-coming group Bad Beat Review at a venue in Leeds, England, when the tragic incident took place in July (05).

A witness at the gig revealed, "He crouched down before leaping off the stage and tried to grab the lighting rig and his momentum carried him forward.

"He went upside down and hit the floor. It lasted about five seconds. It was horrendous."
