guest photo: it might get loud


yesterday's comments revealed that i had missed out on getting a picture of the traffic signs around the rose bowl warning of loud music. fortunately my friend debbie snapped a shot and passed it on to me to use today. thanks deb!

the whole u2 at the rose bowl show can be seen right here, although i must admit that the recording really doesn't do justice to how loud the crowd noise was. of course, a traffic sign is not a great warning to the surrounding area, and some people were not impressed.


if you want to see more of the massive stage, see my facebook photos here.

A friend of mine lives a block away from RB - he said the noise was ANNOYING LOUD when Rolling Stones were in concert a decade or so ago. How did U-2 compare?

I got around that night, and the volume was unpredictable. It's the nature of hillsides. Sound travels in unexpected ways.

Come for a visit in the "adjacents". Check out the comments. I too have U2 story to tell

Cool face book photos. Now I have a sense of what I was looking at.
