… we had cables.

Or in The Beatles case, lots and lots of cables.

Let’s hope those little amps were real, or the audience would hear nothing at all.

Actually, they probably wouldn’t anyway.

Not just because of all the screaming, but because that amplification couldn’t outshout a wet fart in an empty pub, let alone a stadium of thousands upon thousands of fans.

Mind you, when you listen to an audio recording of the concert where that photo was allegedly taken [their last ever concert at Candlestick Park in San Fran] you start thinking that the ‘old days’ concerts, weren’t as gentle and innocent as the historians would like us to believe.
