The Black Crowes‘ guitarist Rich Robinson was involved in a minor skirmish with an uninvited stage invader during his band’s show in Melbourne, Australia on November 20: as security sought to wrestle the man off the stage, Robinson took matters into into his own hands, and smashed the individual in question in the chest with his guitar, forcing him back into the audience.

Readers with long memories might recall The Who‘s Pete Townshend famously employing a similar tactic to remove political activist Abbie Hoffman from the stage at Woodstock festival in 1969, when the Youth International Party spokesman hijacked Townshend’s microphone to protest at the imprisonment of MC5 manager John Sinclair for marijuana possession. Townshend cracked Hoffman with his guitar and warned the crowd: “”The next fucking person that walks across this stage is gonna get fucking killed.”
