Beautifully said Captain! Thanks for the support. And for the record. In case it wasn't clear. To my knowledge it was not discussed what kind of record we would be doing for JVC back in 96. It wasn't untill after the fact that things were made very clear. And we certainly did try to make a great album. I TRY very hard every time, no matter what the budget. I do pay for a lot of things myself and have no problem with that. No one was looking for a free handout. What a rediculous statement! I certainly understand this business after almost twenty years! But to compare music with a bank job does indeed cross a line as Captain said. I guess at the end of the day, no matter how close non-artists get to artists they will still never BE artists or think like us. That is definitely a big hurdle to get over in terms of working together. That's the difference between great managers and bad ones. How well they understand the creative process. It just simply is not the same as other jobs. As far as working musicians like myself who do a lot of sessions for various companies and producers. That is more like a job. I am working for THEM. It's a different as it can be from writing, arranging and recording an album of your own music. Can't remember who made that comparison, but it couldn't be more ignorant if the truth be told.
And just to answer some of the other "digs" in the thread, just because I want to have musical freedom does not mean that I'm going to create the new, great sound that will change the universe! I NEVER said that. Only that I want to stretch out a little. Man, this is a tough board. Anyway, Thanks to all that supported my side of this debate. I think that this is ultimately a good thing and will hopefully help us find a solution rather than pull us all further apart.
Cheers,
Tony
