I went to see Rainbow around 1980, their support band that day were a Aussie band called Rose Tattoo, they were so loud we had to move from the front of the hall with our fingers in our ears, anybody seen this band?, or seen one that were too loud?
I have seen many concerts.. and there were a few that left my ears ringing, but none had ever caused me to nearly pass out from overload such as AC/DC in 2000... WOW.. it really wasnt their music as much as the clapping during Shoot to Thrill... WOW.. But that isnt saying that they werent loud.. OH they were.. Of course, I am one of the silly people that REFUSE to purchase ear protection... lol
This is technically true, as I believe their 1976 concert from Swansea or Charlton (can't remember which) holds the record for being the loudest at 120db's.
And with John Entwistle and Keith Moon in the band, I don't find it hard to believe at all.
Keith Moon alone could rip 120db. heh, Pete Townshend gave him a serve yesterday (I was watching Tommy, very good!) and said 'I can say what I want about him! He's dead!'
Bit morbid but funny none the less.
Sad, sad, sad. Who HASN'T driven a Mercedes into a pool?
Well..Keith Moon but wouldn't it be funny?
The (really really crappy) bads that played at our school Christmas concert. Of course, i was at the front of the hall, telling the lead singer to take his shirt off.... he didnt hear me (he's pretty hot).And they were one of the more quieter bands!!! i didnt see my friends boyfriend play!!! they're a heavy metal band... and ive heard they're pretty good. i wish i saw them, but i had to go home and get ready for my formal...dammit! but if you want loud, listen to my friends bands...its alright...you dont need ear drums all you life!
I think I put the 'h' in there due to Townshend. Most of the Townshends I know are 'h'-less. Bastards. And you Petey.
Extra, extra, read all about it. Pinball Wizard, Miracle Cure! Extra, extra, read all about it! Extra!
