If you're a regular gig-goer, no doubt you'll be all-too-familiar with them.

By them, we mean one of the 7 most annoying people you meet at a gig; the Amateur Documentarian, i.e. the person who insists on holding their phone/iPad up and videoing long periods of the gig, blocking the view of a multitude of people behind them in the process.

If you're one of those people, we have one thing to say to you:

The odd time, you'll get a musician who asks fans to put their phones away and enjoy the moment - as Chris Martin did at Coldplay's recent Croke Park gig. 

Now, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor - who has form on the subject - has spoken about the issue in a new interview, and he speaks a lot of sense.

He told Loudwire: "It’s fine. Bring your phone, take pictures, do whatever you want. But why? You’re there,” he said. "Take pictures, do whatever you want, but why are you filming it? It’s one thing to film it, but it’s another thing to just be staring at your screen while you’re filming it. It’s right there! Are you so terrified of real life that you can’t do anything unless it’s on that little four-by-four screen? Ugggh. It’s very weird.”

Couldn't have said it better ourselves.
