I am embarrassed to admit that I belong to this generation of fools that think this kind of rude behavior is acceptable. When I finally purchased a cell phone (just about the only mechanical device that I own) I told the sales person that I was not interested in bells and whistles, just phone service... just 911 in emergencies,just a phone. She looked at me like I was crazy.
What has happened to really experiencing live music? We live in Memphis, come on. You have to hear the music and feel it. You have to understand that live music ( especiall classic and legendary live music) should be respected and appriciated, NOT recorded on a 2x2 inch screen and put on YouTube.
I have had several almost ruined musical experiences and agree that this is horrible. It makes me sad that live music is not truly enjoyed or honored anymore.
