Everclear Singer Wants End to Moshing

Everclear singer Art Alexakis is ready to see an end to the phenomenon of moshing and crowd-surfing. Alexakis says it always seems that it’s guys kicking girls in the head.

“It’s just like, just watch the show,” Alexakis told AP Radio.

He says he’s “a little reminiscent for the summer of ’94 just like anyone else” but he’s sick of people getting hurt. The singer says although people still mosh at their shows, they tend to jump more than mosh.

Fans close to the front might get an extra treat. Alexakis says they’ve been pulling someone out of the audience to play guitar on “Santa Monica,” just to keep it interesting. “And that makes it way more fun for me. It’s just we’ve played that song and “New Life” and “Father of Mine” and all our wonderful, all our biggest singles that have done well at radio and video, we’ve just played the hell out of them,” Alexakis told AP Radio.
