ReapTheChaos: I've never understood the appeal of live concerts. Unless you're in the first 15-20 rows, you can't see shiat anyway. What's even worse is that even the ones lucky enough to score a front row seat always spend the whole show standing, which leads to everyone behind them standing, which leads to the entire stadium standing. Why they even bother with chairs is beyond me.




You sound old.

My age has nothing to do with it, the last concert I went to I was in my mid 20s and this is exactly what I thought then as well as every one before that, and it's the reason I stopped wasting my money on them.

Dragonflew: 69gnarkill69: Dragonflew: HotIgneous Intruder: Jammers.
We need cell phone jammers.

Jammers do nothing to block the cell phone's camera nor dim the blinding screen of the phone of the asshole next to you.

Ghaaaa! The asshole next to me is blinding me with his cell phone!

Good for you, you found a picture with bright lights. But concert lighting is dynamic, and most of the time a bright cell phone screen is distracting. Go right ahead and keep feeling entitled like the author, though. It's obviously winning her a lot of friends in this thread.


You have zero sense of humor.  I do not want to party with you dude.

This is probably a matter of perspective....if you're a small person, I suppose cell phones might actually increase your enjoyment of the show, allowing you to see the artist through the screen, better than what was possible before. As a somewhat tall dude, I used to always be able to find a place where I could see the band, but nowadays my view is constantly being blocked by motherfarkers sticking their cellphones in the air.

There's a part of me that would like to invest in some horse steroids, put on 100 pounds of muscle, and then just walk around shows smacking cell phones violently out of the air.

I learned a valuable lesson from this episode of What's Happening. But apparently...I was the only one.

olddeegee: There's always the chance that a band member will spontaneously combust. Otherwise, from a guy who's filmed/taped bands since the 70s, the recordings are a great thing to have decades later.(Ramones in 1979 ).


awesome. in the cassette tape days there was a vendor at the saturday flea market in woodstock NY that had the largest live recording selection you'd ever want to see. if you had a show he didn't have and it was on decent quality tape he would swap you 1 for 1, whatever you wanted.

In the 70's, when bootlegs mattered, I remember seeing a guy get pulled aside at a concert because he had a full-size reel-to-reel strapped to his back under a long baggy coat.

When I was overseas, I got a transferred to CD live cassette recording of Jimi Hendrix. The 'story' - is that Jimi sometimes set up a cassette recorder on stage when he played in small clubs; he'd ad lib/free flow on his solos, then go back and listen to them and keep the parts that worked. Anyways, someone supposedly nicked the tape and multiple multiple copies were distributed. (after reading the wiki link below maybe the 'nicked' part isn't true).

Pretty crappy quality, but it is noted for the fact that an extremely shiatfaced Jim Morrison comes on stage, grabs the mike and slurs/yowls for a minute or so (really hard to understand, but I believe part of it was 'f*ck her in the ass', repeated loudly several times).

Damn, just did a quick search and it's been 'officially' released as 'Bleeding Heart'
Believe mine was titled 'Woke Up This Morning and Found Myself Dead'

Yuuup.  Had a copy myself.  Kinda miss the old cassette trading days.

/except for the layers of noise on a 10th generation copy of Zeppelin at Earls Court...

I've seen thousands of shows in every kind of venue you can imagine.   When I was young, I wanted 75,000 screaming maniacs.   Now that I'm old, I want 75 screaming maniacs.

And the only shows worth seeing are ones where you have to stand.  If you are sitting down, it's not a show, it's a recital.

If I were in some famous band, I would let the audience record as much as they wanted during the first song or two, and then ask them to put their devices away.

I'm 51 and have been going to concerts since I was 13. You either love live music or you don't.

I love music, I just don't like concerts.
