Mike, I am so amazed by all the hits you have mixed this question came to mind. I write songs, currently recording my first album and feel so pressured to present some good material and hope some record company or producer will be interested in my work.. that I go through depression one day, next day feel good, next day depression.. etc.. etc.. In other words.. stresses the hell out of me. (and well my family is about to kill me, but that is another story... jiji)
But in a good sense, being a nobody does give me the chance to have a couple of failures.
My question is, how do you manage the stress of having such a reputation and keeping it for so many years???? If an album you have mixed doesn't do as well as you thought.. do you feel responsible ??? I can't even imagine what kind of stress you go through when you know a mix of yours will reach millons??? Do you even think about that ??
I truly admire people like you, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
