SLIPKNOT Percussionist Thinks Moshing Has Turned Into A Form of Bullying

Is he right?

Is he right?

Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn was recently interviewed by Music Review, and when the topic of Randy Blythe's Czech trial and crowd interaction in general came up, Fehn had this to say:

"Yeah, that was a very sad situation I'm friends with Randy, and it was an unfortunate event that happened. I know that he's not that type of person at all — he would never hurt anybody."I think, especially in America, moshing has turned into a form of bullying. The big guy stands in the middle and just trucks any small kid that comes near him. They don't mosh properly anymore. It sucks because that's not what it's about. Those guys need to be kicked out."A proper mosh pit is a great way to be as a group and dance, and just do your thing."

I have to say I feel there is something to what Fehn is saying. There are definitely macho douchebags in the pit who try to prove their toughness sometimes. But there are also times when it's just a bunch of people jumping around having a great time.

I guess the point here is, don't be a jackass in the pit!
