woman suing Fishbone for stage diving-related injury
As one of the self-proclaimed pioneers of stage-diving, Fishbone front man Angelo “Dr. Madd Vibe” Moore has been perfecting his form for more than 25 years.
But his diving produced an unwilling ripple in his human sea while the band performed last month at the World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St.
On Friday, a woman who was at that show filed a lawsuit against Moore, charging that he broke her collarbone when he launched off the stage onto the outstretched hands of the audience. Kimberly Myers, 42, of Voorhees, N.J., claims in the suit that she attended Fishbone’s Feb. 23 show at the World Cafe’s downstairs stage and that “without any warning,” Moore dived off the stage and into the audience near where she was standing.
The suit claims that she also suffered a fractured skull, perforated eardrum and hearing loss and that she had to be taken from the venue by an ambulance. [Philly Daily News]
