Rest in Peace! Still such a loss. He was an incredible Mixer!

He was such a 'gent' at the LA GS meetup we had at James Lugo's studio.

Shared all his tips and tricks to an eager (very experienced audience) that gathered around him and explained that he took a lot of arrows in the back from the LA audio engineering community over his unconventional 'non natural drum sounds' - and thats why he didn't live in LA.

Not to derail, but when was this? I only knew him (slightly) toward the end of his life, and he lived in LA then.

Perhaps he said Nashville - (Let's not labour this point please) either way he told me that he got a lot of arrows in his back from the engineering community over his "non natural" sounding recordings. He was a pioneer.

Hello - I realize this is quite a late comment on this subject but as such a big fan of Mike Shipley’s work who has long been troubled by this, I did try the livestream link from the memorial service and it appears to no longer be active. In lieu of an active link, is there any way you can summarize his words and sentiments on this most tragic subject?

Thank you for your consideration.
