Well I hope Pete Show Him the Way to where his cell phone was going
This is what Alice Cooper had to say about it:a read an interview lately with Jack White where he mentioned he's getting sick of playing for people because it disgusts him to look out and see nothing but cellphones aimed at him.
...I imagine other artists are starting to feel similar.
Ok pet peeve... Call me old-school, or maybe just OLD. There's a whole show going on in front of you. It takes many talented people to put on a show. There are many sleepless nights, personal sacrifices and bruises... PUT YOUR PHONE OR YOUR TABLET DOWN. You don't need to film the show. Experience it. You are there! We are doing this for you! Take some photos sure, but you are missing the SHOW while trying to film a grainy poor quality version to share online and watch later while bumping into people in the street. Come on! #ReallyBakesMyCookies, #PutYourPhoneDown, #TechnoTard, #GetOffMyLawn
I am hoping that one day we can shrink all of life down to a small pixelated ersatz version of reality.Seems odd that a life-long public performer like PF would even notice what specific audience members are doing. Let alone be bothered by a cell phone. Kinda comes with the profession he's chosen. I was at a McCartney concert recently and was amazed and amused by how many (hundreds I'd say) were watching the show through the screens of their phones.
