I know you are not. Back in the days when I did more live sound, I had an
argument with a rocker over his amp levels being too loud. His reply: “It
ain’t loud enough unless it makes the inside of my ears tickle.” I doubt
he can hear much of anything, now, twenty or so years later. Very, very
I always carry earplugs to deal with situations like that...
