Lcd Soundsystem - James Murphy Attacked Rude Fan

Former Lcd Soundsystem star James Murphy once grabbed a fan by the throat and threatened him after receiving criticism about his show.
The musician has previously admitted he was prone to fits of violence as a teenager and "hurt a few kids pretty bad", and he's now revealed he struggled to control his temper during a DJ set.
He tells Britain's ShortList magazine, "England is the only place where someone will walk up to you and moan in an attempt to become buddies.
"I remember DJing once and this kid came up to me and said, 'This set is so sh*t,' to try to show me how cool he was. I just grabbed him by the throat and was like, 'You're talking to a f**king stranger. We don't know each other, dude. I am from a f**king farm town, I will beat the s**t out of you.'
"I take criticism every day. You can't just go up to a stranger and moan. That s**t has only happened to me in England."
