..well since you ask.

when i was 15 I played in a two man band with a drummer who was a schoolmate at my skool. we then lost contact for 30 years. he tracked me down earlier this month on the web and we met up...he's a singer now and we decided to do a small covers band for fun. we found a bassist and drummer from another band and the 4 of us have a practice next weekend just to see if we click musically. if we do then we will bash out some 70's/80's hard rock covers an hopefully do few gigs in some rocker pubs etc. we have to do covers to get the gigs around here but I'm going to sneak in a few of my own at some point and see if anybody notices! it's early days and this still may not get off the ground but I hope it does.

FWIW,

In case you're wondering where all my time goes, you can check out some clips from the public access tv show I've been doing here:

http://www.youtube.com/OnstageKeene

I arrange the talent and do the sound. It was shaky when we started, but it's all starting to come together.

True, but the plan is to fill in the hole.

We'll have to decide who's taking what of the furnishings.....

I want the lava lamp.

Happy end of the year guys.

Been traveling in a land with NO INTERNET.

Thought I was gonna die.

Patrick, I'm curious as to how many hours per week you spend doing studio work AND how you got people to take you seriously? I've done lots of freebies as a way to get my name out there, but it has not developed into much in the line of paying gigs. Seems many people think that either their cousin with the digital 8 track is good enough or that they have to go with a "name" studio to get what they want.
...or it could be that I'm not as good at the recording process as I think I am.....

Happy new year you guys..

Thanks Timster!

I do still have my day job.. The same one for 25 years.. I can't stand the thought of quitting it.. I love that stupid job! 6:00am to 2:30pm Mon- Fri. Never nights or weekends. It has been a perfect platform from which to build Stairway West and East. But once Stairway East opens, something's gotta give.. And it certainly ain't gonna be Stairway West. So, sadly, in 2008, my illustrious mail career will end. But I'll hold onto it as long as I possibly can... But that's another story.. \:D


ElRanchoDeluxe,

Those are great questions that I'll be glad to answer as best I can, but I can only reference my experience at Stairway West.. I've never worked at any other studio.. But I have a session in about an hour so I have to get out there..

I'll be back in a couple of hours..

Thanks for asking! \:\)

HKP

Dudes,

I just finished reading the latest addition of Sound on Sound and, for giggles, decided to check out the surround mp3 site they mentioned. It's an interesting experience and I'm wondering what y'all think of it? You need to use headphones to make it work if you don't have a 5.1 setup. Use the middle button on the right (5.1 in headphones) and compare that to normal stereo by clicking between that and the bottom button once you download a file. Here's a link to a site that has both the player and some song files:

http://www.all4mp3.com/


Curious as to what people think of this; the effect is subtle, but potentially significant.
