Not a recent thing, but this week is the tenth anniversary of the Station Nightclub fire in Rhode Island where 100 were killed and 200 others injured. A lot of people in this area knew someone affected by this, and it certainly changed my perspective on being at a show in a small, crowded place. Many who lost loved ones or survived this fire are still having a hard time dealing with it. Seems like it was only yesterday.
Well, of course I remember that Sandy. I remember writing on Joe's forum my opinion that it was time to completely eliminate pyrotechnics from musical performances indoors. Well now Brazil had an even worse fire last month, 238? lives lost. Terrible TRAGEDIES.
BUT ultimately they were PREVENTABLE. Find some other way to wow your crowds, please! It's bad enough with presumption of all the indoor electrical circuits are 100% safe , but adding explosions and real fires...my stamp of disapproval says FOOLISH.
Rock ON & Hope For Learning,
