Mine does. Is it wrong that it irritates me? I was the lead singer in my old band and I could memorize 4 hours worth of material so I know it can be done but not everyone's level of dedication is the same. Our singer has a music stand stand with a 2 inch thick 3 ring notebook about I foot from his face with 3 little clip on LED fishing lights clipped to the top of his stand, mic stand in front off center from his stand with a cup holder mounted to it. He plays acoustic guitar also. And from the crowd looking at the stage his set up looks so busy and cluttered. He would almost be better served with a podium instead. It's kinda funny but with his lights lighting up his face on a dark stage he looks like an old guy reading a book in a recliner even though he's standing.
