You engineer and make music and dont know who Alex Chilton is?? Absolutely shameful...
but you know a lot about what equipment is hot, what is new, I bet.... now man, that is really unfortunate. Of course, all too familiar 'round here.
some folks can tell you ever piece of gear that is made for a 500 series, every serial number of every piece of vintage crap out there.. but dont know dick about the history of the music we make. .that is really, really sad.
without the artists, there would be no music, and these little boxes would be just ugly bits of metal. (well, thats all they are anyway, but you get it
Alex Chilton --- LEGEND
we have an obligation as musicians to learn about the masters that were ahead of us. to learn about the history of the music we are so invested in creating..
sort of an interesting story..
the first guy I worked for.... he wouldn't let me even touch a broom until I had listened to about 1000 hours of music(that he chose) and read certain books(history/theory/etc).
I wish I had someone like that now.
