I enjoyed seeing that again. I couldn't help but wonder why Gilbert was wearing headphones. Any thoughts on that?

I have no idea why he was wearing headphones. I was wondering that myself... perhaps they were acting as ear plugs or monitors.

Was that video already posted here, if so, my apologies?

He does that because of damaged hearing.

I have some of that too.

Robert - Thanks for passing that along. I wondered if that might be the case. I have severe hearing loss and wear hearing aids in both ears... Protecting your hearing is very important, I wish I had been more aware of the damage loud music can cause... Take care!

No Jestme...I had seen it on YouTube before.

Eh...What was that Robert...Say again? I am sure I have some hearing loss, but possibly just certain frequencies. I attempted to join the Army as a Warrant Officer (to fly helicopters) at one point. The hearing exam was a challenge, particularly in high frequencies.

I have a dip arround 3k in right ear, and slight roll off of highs and lows, like reverse of smiley curve, in the left.
Not to mention tinnitus, which is the worst thing in the world of hearing, once you become aware of it.

When I was exiting out of the Army, my hearing was tested to show hearing loss at around the same frequency as rifle fire.... But since then I experimented with a Mesa Boogie 80watt amp in a 2x12 config to see how loud it would get... Needless to say my left ear bugs me if it gets too loud now...

Fantastic video. Guthrie and Paul are 2 of my favorite guitar players. Just wish it lasted longer than 22 minutes. Thanks for sharing.
