Sebastian Bach to fans: "Put your fuckin' cellphone away, dammit"


Sebastian Bach asked fans to keep their cellphones at the bottom of their pockets and just watch the show when they come to see him next week during his June 20 concert at Awesome Biker Nights in Sioux City, Iowa. Below you can read some excerpts.


Sebastian Back said to SiouxCityJournal.com: "Be in the moment. You're distracted and it's distracting to the performer as well. Like, put your fuckin' cellphone away, dammit! You're never even going to watch that footage."

"If I go to a wedding and sing a song, it's on Blabbermouth the next day and everybody analyzes it. It's a really backwards way to watch a band. It's a drag sometimes when I go up there and the first thing I see is everybody getting their phones out and holding them toward my face. It makes you feel intimidated."

"I try to tell myself that but I can't do it," said Bach with a laugh. "The music gets in me and I want to move and jump. I don't want to stand there frozen like a tree and be filmed."
