Grumpy middle aged man alert....

I think I'm now all in favour of the militant banning of phones from gigs, particularly those at smaller venues. The last couple I've been to have been a sea of phones and last night's in a smaller seated venue was a bit of a 'mare. Some people obviously recording the odd song or getting some pics, but then you have ********* using their phone a lot to check mails, facebook etc. Some guys spent most of the gig taking videos of them, the stage, them singing, all of which was obviously done with the flash on.

And as for those who spend the majority of the gig just talking to their mates or shouting for the band to play their Biggest Song Ever™ at every break in the music.

Honestly, I know its hard at my age not to be a bit Larry David about every little thing, but who pays Ł70+ for a ticket, gets ****** up and carries on like they're in the terraces in the 80s. Baffling.

I've never understood anyone going to a gig, cinema, theatre etc. and spending their time doing anything but watching what they paid to see. I think it is because many people are ******* idiots.
I'm fairly lucky in that I only tend to go and watch pretty heavy bands in smaller venues so people don't to spend much time on their phones for fear of having them knocked out of their hands and any talking is drowned out by the distortion.

Jim Vallance, who co-wrote the song and was born in 1952, has always said it is about the year. Hence the apostrophe before the 69.
Bryan Adams was just trying to look cool.

Sadly too many people don;t give a **** about others these days.

I once wnt to an Alabama 3 acoustic gig and the people in front of me got really arsey when I asked them to stop their long and loud conversation. Gits.

The most extreme was when a fight broke out at a gig I was at because someone wouldn't shut up. There was a police wagon outside as we left. The gig inm question was by Low. I mean who the **** goes to a Low gig and chats all the way through it.
