Doing television shows is always fun for me. I’ve done a ton of them with different bands: The Tonight Show w/Fallon, The Late Show w/Letterman and also w/Colbert, Seth Meyers, Ellen, Wendy Williams, The Today Show, Jools Holland, Graham Norton, various BBC specials, and my favorite - Saturday Night Live. And you know what? I barely touched a console at any of them!
I used to own a studio in Chicago and had a lot of fun making records. But there was a point when the work I could get as a live sound engineer quickly became more attractive than hustling for studio clients. After all, I enjoy having just a few clients per year instead of many per month, I like how steady the work is with actively touring bands, and I love traveling around the world!
