“My Monitors were far too loud” I said to the Sound Engineer. “They almost blew my ears off!”
“Sorry mate” he said, “But my mind reading skills are really crap today – maybe they will be better the next time you use my gear”.
I remember playing at a festival in Luton and the P.A. system was massive. The speakers had COLDPLAY stencilled on the side in large white lettering and there were 2 huge screens either side of the stage displayed video images of our band. It was the nearest I would ever get to playing at a major gig in front of thousands of people and I was loving it.
