Went to see Motley Crue and Alice Cooper last night. My ears are still ringing and I'm just getting my hearing back. What's the deal with bands that have the music so loud that you can't distinguish notes, or words? Cooper opened for them (should be the other way around) and he was loud, but it wasn't painful and the music and vocals sounded great. The Crue comes out and the kick drum feels like I'm having heart palpatations and you can't understand a word. I guess I need to start packing ear plugs to these things. Seeing Boston and Night Ranger Sunday, likely won't have an issue there..
A buddy of mine went and seen them in Dallas (I assume) last night or maybe the night before.
Showed some pictures of them playing on a platform 20 feet above the audience.
