25. -Monitor Mix is the key word her-MONITOR MIX
Platinum rock musician here!!
I know what happened-
he should have had an ear feed monitor going..would have never been a problem...but I guess he didn't...
so, here's what happens-

If your monitor mix is bad you can't hear yourself...what do you do?--raise your volume of course--
...still can't hear yourself?
what do you do?
SCREAMING becomes necessary!!!
if you play back only the "direct" feed off the board what do you hear?
And screaming sounds wierd without the background noise of crowds.

No FAULT of Dean's AT ALL !!

He should have been coached about sound on stage first.

The poor guy was just doing what you or I would have done and now he probably doesn't really understand why everyone thinks he's mental or something.(maybe now he does)

The rule is look at the sound man and touch your ear...test, wait til you can hear then proceed.

Dean is a stable doctor with a strong presence and with genuinely good intentions --he truly cares about the greater good of the people...

he obviously has much better intentions than 'ol Kerry bo tox bonesman.
