<< What was most fascinating about all this were the reporters
who were sent to cover the event. On the 3 major channels the
ages were 40+ and all of them laughed about their ears ringing
and head hurting from the noise. The look of pain on Marge
Pala's face said it all. But they didn't dwell on the pain or ear
ringing...instead they told of what a swell time it was and how
the music was so loud that the whole stage vibrated mightily.
Well, this is the Never-Never Land syndrome. Baby-boomers
just don't like to admit they're aging.
To say anything negative about rock bands is to put oneself
at risk of being called an old fogey or something worse.
They'll sit there and endure that pain just to keep up the
pretense of being young. This is really bizarre.
It's going to take something like a promotional campaign
of sexy young models praising classical music and grimacing
at the sound of Metallica to reverse this.
