  1. Stage diving

    Stage diving is the act of leaping from a concert stage onto the crowd below. It is often the precursor to crowd surfing. Initially seen as confrontational and extreme, stage diving has become common at hardcore punk and thrash metal performances. Many musicians have made stage diving a part of their stage act. Iggy Pop is often credited with popularising stage diving in popular rock music. Jim Morrison was another early performer known for having jumped into the crowd at several concerts. Stage diving can cause serious injuries. One example is when Peter Gabriel of Genesis stage dived during the end of their song "The Knife", landing on his foot, thus breaking his ankle. On 20 August 2010, Charles Haddon, the lead singer of English synthpop band Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, died after a performance at Pukkelpop, Belgium. He committed suicide by jumping from a telecommunications mast in the backstage artists' parking area. Haddon was reported to have been distressed after he feared he had seriously injured a young girl earlier after a stagedive. In 2012, singer Randy Blythe of American heavy metal band Lamb of God was indicted on charges of manslaughter relating to the death of a fan in the Czech Republic after the fan was injured after being pushed off the stage.
