Oh yes, I remember the intense ear ringing that lasted through the following week (and sounded a lot like what the show itself sounded like.) I’d been to a few “rock concerts” before that but that was the first time that had happened. And when I saw subsequent shows, including the above-mentioned Clash one at the Warfield Theater a few months later, that didn’t leave such a lasting mark of damage I tended to scoff. Of course, I am now half deaf. A fitting payment for all that rock and roll, I suppose, as I had my fun but now nothing is ever loud enough.
