Later on Twitter, Buckley said, “Stage selfies = look at me look at me I didn't get enough attention as a kid and can't handle 5 people here getting more attention than me.”

Fast forward to 2016 and Buckley's bandmate slash brother, Keith, has shut down another fan popping onstage for a selfie. Posted by Lambgoat, this gif captured the irreplaceable moment:
No one can deny the phones-at-shows debate is hot in the scene right now. Recently, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong spoke about his views on the topic, and the Maine's John O'Callaghan halted his band's set at Warped Tour this summer during “Growing Up” to urge fans to put away the phones.
Slipknot's Corey Taylor also slapped a phone out of a fan's hand recently.
Every Time I Die are currently on a U.K. tour and just announced a tour with Knocked Loose.
