Guitarist From Splendour Act Nothing But Thieves Is A “Graceful Salmon”, Crowdsurfs To Break Up A Fan Fight

Written by Emmy Mack on June 3, 2016

Dom Craik from Splendour In The Grass 2016 act Nothing But Thieves has given new meaning to the term #GuitarHero.

During the rockers’ current US tour, the axeman dropped his guitar, dove headfirst into the moshpit and crowdsurfed like motherfarkin’ Superman to break up a biff that had broken out between fans.

But Craik used a different analogy to describe his courageous antics.

“I flew through the crowd like a graceful salmon #dontfightatgigsyoumuppets” he tweeted.

According to a witness, he was observed jumping into the crowd, fighting someone, then getting back onstage to continue the song like it ain’t no thang.
