How has being a musician affected your marriage and family life (vs a 9-5 job) for both good and bad? Seems like it'd be difficult to provide for a family. Hope this question isn't too personal...
I've no idea, I got fired from my last 9-5 job in 1990 so I have nothing to compare to.
I met my wife in a sweaty club in Bristol where she had been partly responsible for booking me to play a set. She knew what my lifestyle was before we got together and so she knew what she was getting into. Likewise, my daughter went to her first Glastonbury when she was a year old and she's now a seasoned party-kid. Completely unfazed by mad dancing hippies and 40kw sound systems.
Altogether it provides a standard of living way above most of the people on this planet so I have no complaints. We have a warm house, enough food, as many 'things' as we need and, most importantly, time to enjoy each other's company.
Ott, you are not, on the spot, where we think you ought, to do a lot of sharing your thoughts on wot we sought about what you taught.. ok I'm high, but I miss your periodic nuggets of wisdom.Ott responded on 08/31/2012 Next question
Need to improve my mixing skills. Do you know any good information resources for electronic music? I find little other than the same simple tutorials and people endlessly arguing about plugins.Ott responded on 08/31/2012
