    Music: Is Filming Live Performance Bad Manners?
    [Image: _67990900_krystianzimermanhighres1-credi...anddgg.jpg]One of the world's leading pianists,
    Krystian Zimerman, walked off-stage during a performance because he saw a fan filming his performance on a smartphone.

    He eventually returned to the stage and finished the show but not before making this declaration:

    Quote:The destruction of music because of YouTube is enormous.

    Apparently his is not alone. In April, indie rock band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs put up a note for fans entering a gig.

    Quote:Please do not watch the show through a screen on your smart device/camera,

    Former Pink Floyd bassist and vocalist Roger Waters described filming at gigs as showing a "lack of respect" to the artist. I personally don't understand why they aren't flattered that someone wants to see the show again so much that they want to record it.

    I can see if peeps were setting up video rigs and cranes in the aisles but what is the harm in grabbing a video to remember the concert by?

    Am I missing something here?
    they don't get any revenue from it.
