Slipknot Percussionist Chris Fehn Thinks Moshing Has Turned Into A Form Of Bullying


Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn recently spoke with Music Review and during the course of the chat was asked about crowd interaction and moshing in the wake of Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe‘s manslaughter trial. Fehn likened moshing, particularly in America, to a form of bullying, offering:

“…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.”
