I haven’t written for ages, and now I’m off on holiday, so its not going to happen for a while! I thought I would leave with a thought that I had today…
How far are you prepared to go to ‘save the show’? I’ve heard many crazy stories about the lengths that engineers go to, to keep things working for a gig. The question I want to pose to you today is… How far will you go?
To be honest, the only thing that I wish I could get people to do more often is take initiative, use their logic, work out what is most important, and be prepared to go the extra mile to get that working. Something as small as a faulty cable can bring down the entire PA or a part of it, and if there are no spares, are you prepared to unscrew the connector, plug in a soldering iron and get your hands dirty..?
Have a think about it… or not… go on holiday and forget about it all… I know thats what i’m doing!!!!!!
