I bet many of us awakened in such a manner might WANT to do exactly that.
My first year, third morning at sunrise, this amplified voice, seemingly right next to my tent, is obnoxiousating at 100db. I jumped outta the tent only to see some pathetic guy with a mic pulling a little red wagon with an amp. Fortunately, my anger turned to mild amusement, but it could have gone in a violent direction..... it had years before when I was flying to Europe in the top deck of a 747 and the pilot came on the PA about every 30 minutes with some useless informational talk....delivered in that fake good 'ol boy accent they used to have.... anyway, he woke me and I jumped outta my seat, ran 5 steps to his cockpit door, and banged on it really hard for almost a minute screaming "shut the fuck up, asshole." Fortunately for me, it was WAY before flight attendents got the power of a star chamber marshall to handcuff and tape your mouth shut for looking at 'em sideways...
Anyway, perhaps that outburst on the plane, which I didn't even know I had in me, let me deal with the loud rudeness at BM in an acceptable fashion to me.
I think we can all understand David Best's siren response to his (or his camps) sleep being denied by partially deaf DJ's playing to partially deaf dancers (they won't know for quite a few years), we can understand taking of the keys, cutting wires, talking to him, running across the playa to "get him", getting the Rangers involved, punchin' him out, too!
BTW, I bet David Best would have preferred a punch to his face rather than his compressor being disabled. Didn't they use compressors to power all their nail guns to assemble the Temple? Might this one not been one of those?
Also, I believe he is partially deaf, as I saw him without any ear protection standing right in front of his siren for about 20 minutes one day.
