That little phrase is something we like to remind music fans pretty often here at Whiskey Riff. You can’t even imagine the number of people I’ve seen watch an entire concert through their phone, recording every single second, but not actually enjoying any of it. It’s bat-shit crazy to me.
This past weekend, a fan got the chance to stand on stage next to the former Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello and what did he do with that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? He tried to take a selfie. A fucking selfie…
A teachable moment no doubt, Tom took his phone, mid-guitar solo, and threw it into the crowd. A zer0-fucks-given, live in the moment reminder that this idiot is never going to forget.
For fuck’s sake, look at the cover photo. You see the amount of dipshits watching this incredible experience through their phones? It’s unbelievable. Put your phones down, live in the moment, and learn to enjoy life for what it is, not the validation you can get on Instagram.
