Why do rock bands like Oriental rugs so much?
I'm watching the Foo Fighters Wasted Light performance and couldn't help but notice the assortment of Oriental rugs that comprise the stage floor. This is an old cliche--I remember even LL Cool J rapping on a rug at his MTV Unplugged performance.
Where did it come from, and why? Is it comfort? Acoustics? Something the Yardbirds did?
