Heath,

I willinging admit that I was the worst drummer in the world. I had a royal blue "Pearl" set as a teenager and played with school friends but once I saw pro's in the studio I realized that my gifts lay elsewhere.

I love drums for that reason, but bass and guitar are also fav's. In truth anybody who can play an instument expertly has my unending admiration.

I have seen guitar players create orchestra's and bass players,the wildest fuzz sounds. Or somebody like Jon brion who can seemingly make a kazoo sound like the heaviest power chord. In the hands of true talent, anything is possible, only limited by time and imagination.

I hire the players I have the utmost respect for and provide both general and specific direction but ultimately I allow them to apply their craft in a manner that best exemplifes their voice.

One could say that my instrument is the console.
