    It`s not a troll move. They put those there for show so the stage isn`t empty and you get the full experience of the show. It`s for your benefit. Most bands actually do this. They just run the sound through the PA system.

    I used to work as a stage hand. Pantera had the same set up back in 91`. Hell, most metal bands use empty cabinets. You only need one live one to mic up for the PA.

    Even on a huge stage sometimes each axe is using a 30 watt amp that`s mic`ed up. Extra stage coverage for the guitar player and other musicians is folded back through the stage monitors.

    I can remember seeing David Lee Roth post Van Halen with Steve Vai (long ago)...it was in Philly and the stage back drop was something like 20 marshall 4x12 cabs wide and 6 or 8 high. It was crazy but obviously fake. But who cares? It just looked cool as hell!

    No, not really...

    It might help if I`d heard of Marshall Stacks before to day, I`m guessing...

    Because most politicians are known for keeping campaign promises and that makes Obama differant. Did I get it right?

    Lame attempt at Obama bashing is lame.

    Gerry: Just trying to educate Lillian here.

    Outward appearances are a facade invented to deceive. Fakeness is so endemic now that it`s expected, a given. A lot of people don`t mind being lied to as long as it looks or seems cool.

    It`s to the point now that some people prefer the lies to the truth, because the truth would make them face a harsh cold reality that they can`t handle.

    tommy2X4: Ronaldus Magnus did not hate the common man, he hated liars. Liberals tout socialism like pedophiles give out candy, both are a trap.

    This is fairly common. The reason this happens is that decades ago, bands needed a wall of speakers and amps to put out enough sound for a concert. However, as technology improved through the years, speakers were able to shrink, and the wall became unnecessary, but the visual of the wall of Marshalls was already ingrained into people`s minds.

    Why the hell does everyone feel the need to turn every discussion into one about politics?!

    As far as the fake wall of speaker cabinets goes, yeah, they`re just for looks. I`ve played in small clubs and bigger festival type venues and all you do is run your guitar/bass rigs through your amp with your settings and effects and plug into the house PA system. People just think it`s cool to see the wall of speakers so that`s why it`s there.

    I now understand what`s going on thanks to whodat6484 and RuralNinja`s replies. No thanks to CrakrJak`s crappy analogy :o

    @Lillian

    Get used to it, a few of them redirect every post into some sort of political analogy. Unfortunately a few people consistently take the bait.

    Sephiroth: It was Lillian that redirected this conversation. The fact that she couldn`t understand fakeness, that she didn`t see how a false facade, is a big deal and typical of the liberal mindset.

    Even after revealing the window dressing, they fail to recognize it`s significance.

    I redirected the conversation by not understanding what`s going on in the two pictures? Yeah, okay. My fault for not going to enough concerts or knowing enough music history or whatever that would have made me understand this quicker...

    I`m going to do something I avoid and feed a troll just because I can`t believe how earnestly douchey CrakrJak is. Regardless of political leaning this is a picture of fake amps, get out of here with that.

    @DeepFryer7

    The truly unfortunate thing is that with douchebags like him that just spew trolling political messages with every single drating post on IAB is that his vote counts just as much as anyone elses.
