Slipknot's Chris Fehn: "Moshing has turned into a form of bullying"

Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn talked with Music Review about mosh pits, especially after the whole incident of Randy Blythe's (Lamb Of God) arrest in the Czech Republic in 2012.

"Yeah, that was a very sad situation," Chris responded. "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."

Fehn added: "A proper mosh pit is a great way to be as a group and dance, and just do your thing."
