World's Loudest Guitar Rig

So, I like to run my guitar amps pretty loud. I guess I just feel dissatisfied with the tone if the amp isn't REALLY workin'.... saturating power tubes and seriously moving some air.

I keep my amps off-stage in order to keep the guitars from dominating the vocal mics and such. It helps preserve a reasonable stage level. This seems like a pretty good solution, except folks backstage sometimes get dominated.

Yesterday, my rig was pointed right at the door to our dressing room. Since we were onstage, I figured the room would be empty. Well, Ryan, our manager, was working in the dressing room. He took this little video...

Incidentally, this is the last chorus of "Meaning of Life".

@Anonymous hopefully he wasn't like Chapstique who compliments a dude on his tee and then as soon as he starts to walk away mumbles about how he actually hated it, ha!

That's AWESOME! for me the louder the better! My eardrums are going to be dead by the time I'm 30 because I like it loud! lol
