Marky Ramone Offers Solution To Battle Smartphones At Concerts
. (Classic Rock) Marky Ramone has offered his own solution to the controversial issue of phones being used at concerts. The drummer says his Smartphone Swatter deals with the "a**holes" who ruin the show for others in a spoof public service video.

He also suggested buying a copy of his autobiography to use as a weapon. Artists from across the rock and metal world have weighed in on the question of using phones at concerts.
