Heavy handed mastering

You mentioned that in some projects you were requested to be fairly heavy handed in mastering (like RHCP's BSSM).

Can you quantify what would be considered a lot of EQ change on something like that? Are we talking drastic 6-9dB changes, 3-6dB changes?

Related, how much are you comfortable EQ'ing and so forth before suggesting/requesting possible mix changes?

Thanks again!

There is no rule. I've used as much as 5 to 6db of eq and at all different frequencies, some on major label records. I listen and if it needs it, I give it. I don't go by what the knobs say, I go by what my ears say.
