Lives for gear

Well, I took the middle ground as well. I've always given my job description as "collaborator" (which means I'll be one of the 1st ones taken out and shot whenever THEY take over). I have yet to meet a really good musician who didn't crave a little creative input and direction. Although I sometimes butt heads over arrangements or mix decisions, it always seems to work out. (Doing 2 versions and then coming back in a couple of days and re-evaluating usually yields a clear winner).
Since one of my other hats is that of musician (made my living that way for a number of years) I can honsetly say that I CRAVE a creative collaborator. I consider the stuff I come up with all by myself to be musical masturbation (to rip off a line from "Fame")
