From This Might Be A Wiki

I watched the live video feed. Did anyone catch where several times Linnell was having trouble with the monitor in his left ear. Then after the aborted intro to Dr. Worm he says, "You know, I gotta say, that weird sound in my ear, I was hearing on the drive down here. So it might not be something on stage." (48:15 in the video) Flansburghs response is classic as always. So is Linnell starting to show the symptoms of Life as a Rock Musician. Tinnitus? I truly hope not. --CaptainCaustic

I'm sorry! I posted this out of a genuine concern for the band. When I use the phrase "Life as a Rock Musician", I mean it strictly in the sense that numerous live performances take a toll on the performers hearing. This is a fact of life in their profession and I was not implying anything beyond that. --CaptainCaustic
I wouldn't worry too much. I'm pretty sure Linnell was just kidding. They all seemed to be having monitor issues. Flans wasn't even wearing his for a while. They joke about the permanent hearing loss of the rock musician pretty frequently. It is, as you say, a fact of life in a rock band. --BlueCanary 18:21, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, BC. I do hope you're correct. I've always been aware that they've been conscientious of, or should I say jokingly resigned to, the real possibility of hearing loss in their profession. They've been using in-ear monitors for years. With Linnell being not that much younger than I am, I worry about silly things like this. Don't get me wrong , I want these guys doing their thing for everybody long after I'm unable to enjoy them. CaptainCaustic
Hearing loss is a pretty big thing with rock bands. I don't think that's what was going on though. You may have also been able to tell that the bass guitar was also having problems. It kept cutting out. I think they were just having tech problems. Nuthin' more. --Propman 21:18, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
The whole system there was horrible, in my opinion. I don't think they had the setup to handle a rock band like TMBG. You could tell that they were all having issues with feedback. At one point during "Dang Good Times", Flans was stumbling over the words for five or so seconds. If you watched him, he was putting his hand up to his ear. I think the sound system as a whole was having problems that night. --Duke33 17:50, 4 October 2010 (UTC)


Anyone happen to extract the audio from the streaming file?

I was glad to see people on Twitter bitching about the Kennedy Center staff. I have been to tons of shows, at much less glamorous places. And, i have never gotten an attitude from a venue's staff like i did at that show. Top to bottom, they were just rude from the second you walked in the door. I wonder if they're not used to handling a crowd like they got for that show? Anyone else have problems? --Duke33 14:17, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't at the show, but my friend (Jpsaurusrex) did attend the show, and I remember her making numerous Facebook statuses complaining about the venue staff. Just curious, in what way were they rude? -- Jason DeLima - ! - 16:07, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
