Should Cell Phones Be Banned From Concerts?

So, there’s been a lot of talk about cell phones at concerts lately. You know what, for the price most concerts cost these days I say let them stay. Seriously, why do these artists care so much. If I want to record a band that I paid hard earned money for well damn it, I’m going too. Lets face it, most of the concerts these days deserve a second look. Plus if you are like me I get so into shows sometimes I forget things.

Guys like David Draiman from Disturbed and Corey Taylor from Slipknot have recently stopped shows to harass concert goers for texting during their shows. Both have also apologized for making such a scene because the person paying their salary sent a text to make sure things were alright at home.

Last year at the El Paso Downtown Street Festival, Rob Zombie started getting onto people about recording the show instead of having a good time. Well, I recorded the first song and other moments of the show and I still rocked out. The argument that we will never watch the footage is absurd. The quality in recording has gotten much better, and it’s my memories. Might as well stop taking photographic images, cause God knows we won’t look at them ever again, yeah right.
