Stage diving is just dumb in this day and age, man.
Hell, it was dumb when I did it in the 1990s. I dove from a stage once. During an Orange 9MM show. And no one caught me.
It was at that point I thought to myself, “Well, fuck that noise. I’m never diving from another stage again, because of you unresponsive fucks.”
These days, who’s gonna catch you or even help you up from the pit floor? Everyone’s so fucking busy with their phones, recording the shows and shit. Of course no one caught the stage diver who died over the weekend following a jump at a Miss May I show.
The incident happened Saturday at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City.
The fan, identified by sources as 21-year-old Alberto Scott, suffered major head injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital where he died.
A woman named Jenise Ramos Sarraga has launched a site to raise funds for the young man’s funeral expenses.
In a statement, that useless band Miss May I said:
“We are aware of the incident that occurred at Webster Hall last night and will be posting a statement shortly. However, we are awaiting further information regarding the situation before we are able to make a full statement.”
Only the strongest survive, kids.
Natural selection is a fucking bitch.
