Sebastian Bach Wants Cellphone Ban At Live Music Venues

(Classic Rock) Sebastian Bach wants live venues to adopt the no-phone policies used in theatres and cinemas. The singer is one of many artists to have slammed audience members who shoot video during shows, recently telling the Sioux City Journal: "You're distracted, and it's distracting to the performer as well."

Now Back tells 105.5 KNAC Los Angeles: "Here's my point: When I go to a movie there's a big f***ing sign, 'Please be kind and put away your cellphones.' If anybody's on a cellphone, I want to f***ing smack them. There's not even anyone on stage. We're watching the playback of a tape."

He continues: "For live performances, you don't give the same respect? You can't go to a movie and have your cellphone on, but when you have actual live human beings, it's f***ing okay? That's f***ing bullsh*t!

"It's not appropriate in our society to stand up in a theater and film the f***ing movie, but it's totally acceptable to do that at a concert?" Read more here.
