This was in a rundown of the year in music, 1979.
"April 13 -- During a concert by Van Halen in Spokane, Washington, David Lee Roth collapses from exhaustion. A local doctor treats him for a stomach virus and advises him to 'calm down.' "
I'll have to ask former features department colleague Rick Bonino if he remembers that.
2:20 P.S. I spoke with Rick and he does not remember that. So maybe it never happened or did not happen here.
