everyone who reads a particular magazine is an asshole? you can
state that without meeting every single reader? how nice.
i wasn't there, so i couldn't see how the crowd were "acting". but
from what's been said, it sounds like no one clapped because they
were asked not to for the purposes of the recording. i think if i'd
been there i would have respected that request.
also, if i'd waited years and traveled a long distance to see a
musician i never thought there was a hope of seeing live, i'd want to
hang on every note and be caught up in the experience. not to
mention that i'm sick of shows where people show up just to look cool
but actually sit in the back and talk loudly and drink beers
throughout the performance. now those are the assholes.
