Watch the video.

First we had Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder stopping a fight in the crowd during the European leg of their current tour.

Then Ian Astbury of the Cult stopped a fight in the crowd at a show in Washington D.C. and sent the fights’ aggressor to the back of the room.

Well, it’s happened again.

As an aside:  what’s with these fights at rock shows?  We’ve seen a lot lately.  Aren’t we going to the concert for a good time?  To relax a bit, chill out and vibe on our favorite songs from our favorite bands?  Can we start realizing that everyone at the show is a fan of the same band and we can start with that shared experience?

The other night in Toronto, Brent Smith from Shinedown left the stage to break up a fight.  From the video that we have at here we can see Brent leave the stage.  According to a published report he allowed the victim of the fight to watch the rest of the show from the side of the stage.

Carl Craft is studying here on earth for a short time with varying amounts of success. He's heard every morning on The Morning Rat Race. Sometimes he goes, "sock / shoe, sock / shoe" which we think is a sign of some kind of psychosis...
