I've been on flightlines with F-4s and near a 155mm howitzer battery.I did tours with KISS and Metallica as the sound system engineer. I know what loud is ........ I also setup my mix console trackside at a Formula 1 race so I know what REALLY LOUD is ..........
I had a similar experience with a Thorogood gig about 1984. Small venue bar, great performance, I had hearing trouble for about four days after. George said to a girl near me, "If it ain’t loud darlin’, it ain’t rock ‘n ‘roll.”I had a front row seat at a Ted Nugent concert once, when I was 16 or so. Right in front of the speakers! My ears rang for two weeks and I had diminished hearing for several days. No evidence of noise-induced hearing loss. It was a great show, but once was enough.
Well, Katy bar the door.I've been on flightlines with F-4s and near a 155mm howitzer battery.
Got to see a NASA launch once. That was enough for me, even miles away.
