Finally home after a few weeks in Florida. Started off with a couple of days of much needed R&R with Bonnie Lake at Madeira Beach.
Worked on consoles for and got to visit with: Erik Rutan at Mana Recording, Rob, Monkey, and Surfer Dude Man at Powerstation Studios, Willie Lindo at Heavybeat Records, Luc Beaulac at Evermore Sound Studios, Javier at Sunspots Productions, David Mikael at Studiolive USA, and Jim Devito at Retrophonics Studio. It was great to see them all!
On the way home I stopped in Hilton Head Island and visited my longtime friend, artist, and drummer Charles Grace.
There was some sadness on this trip, as I learned of the passing of a friend and a truly genius tech named Norman Druce. His company is Atomic Instruments. There was a celebration of life in his honor today in Detroit. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.
I am truly lucky to get to meet, make friends with, and work with people in the music industry. I hope I am able to continue to do so for many years to come.

Spent last week with Dave Natale (FOH for Rolling Stones, Jeff Beck, etc...) in PA going through his AMEK Einstein. He has a rockin’ shop set up at his new place. We listened to allot of great music, ate some good food, and drank some nice wine!
He blamed my bed failure on the movers poor assembly.... but we got a good laugh from it. ... See MoreSee Less

Those daughter cards are a bitch!
Spent the last couple of weeks at Millikin University installing this beauty of a console from Rupert Neve Designs.
T.A.S. replaced control room fabric, cut down and modified the producers desk, designed console furniture, gobos, patch bays and installed and tested all. Thanks to Donnie Duncan for all his help! Also thanks to Kevin Guarnieri and his students for their assistance, and to Mark Michaels Inc. for building the furniture and gobos for us. It really turned out nice! ... See MoreSee Less
