What's your specialty?
For decades, it was very loud rock and roll. Audio mixing till the ears bled. Imagine mixing monitors for Jackyl, say, 4' - roughly a mixer & rack - away from that stage? Same with Frehley's Comet. And let's not forget Agnostic Front, Morbid Angel, Savatage, Type O Negative, Biohazard, Mudvayne, dozens more, and older loudies like King Diamond, Anthrax, Cro-Mags, Misfits, Motorhead..... - like I said: loud. At times I was doing 12 mixes, but mostly eight or less. Did a lot of front of house too.
edit: ah, I see you got the screen name. My tinnitus will never go away...
It was worth it tho. For about 3 years *** Clark knew me by my first name. Priceless. He was every bit the consummate professional, and in every way imaginable. So mellow, philosophical, understated, and even the coffeeboy received direct attention and courtesy. You meet/work with someone like that, and you are always reminded that it's all just a job, and there are more important things in life, and Mr. Clark was right there with that. Humbling.
