People were making a huge deal out of the Black Veil Brides using fake amps during their set for Warped Tour. Well, I was onstage for Machine Head at the Rockstar Metal Mayhem Festival this past Saturday and saw something interesting you will want to see.

I have been talking to people in a few different rock bands and it turns out, MANY of them do use fake amps while on stage. Apparently, if you see more than three amps on stage per performer, the other ones are most likely fake. The bands will just plug into the house system and will not need the extra power. They just look good on the stage. Here is the photo of the Black Veil Brides stage:

And here are photos from the back of Machine Head during their set at Rockstar Energy's Metal Mayhem Festival:

So apparently even Machine Head uses the "dummy" amp method. Is this even a big deal anymore? I don't think so but comment below and let me know what you think.
