U.K. Cuts off The Boss, AND THEY WERE RIGHT!
It's all over the news so just google Bruce Springsteen. A recent concert in Hyde Park UK, was cut off by the sound engineers by noise ordinance laws.
Now before people go all off on me about this. Has anyone ever had a late working day, even into the night, say a Friday night, or Saturday, then had to get up early in the morning for another shift?
I DO like the social attitude of Bruce, he is for the common man economically. But what is the difference between your neighbor breaking noise laws, or a rich person doing it?
The way the media reported it they made it sound like he was cut off after the first song. This was after 3 hours of playing. Even for Bruce that is usually far more than most artists.
Noise laws exist because other people have jobs and just because you like your own noise, doesn't mean your neighbor does. If Bruce is for the common man like he claims, then he should understand that in the city he played, were also people who needed to sleep and wake up early for work.
Otherwise if we can just offend others with noise whenever we want, a construction company could pound a jackhammer next to your house at 3 am.
This is NOT about his music. I am not calling his music noise. I am saying that the volume at the time of night has already been agreed on in that society as being disruptive, NOT THE MUSIC.
This is about the consideration of others. I am sure even Bruce like's quiet time sometimes. I am sure he would not want me outside his mansion at 3 am with a bullhorn, shouting "WE LOVE YOU BRUCE"
So unless this is about money equaling power, then Bruce who has plighted for the common man, should understand the value of sleep so that when they go to work, they can do the work he fights for.
