OK, I just checked out the latest installment, and I'm coming to the conclusion that MM's chapter play is fictional, or largely fictional. It's very entertaining stuff, though. He's quite an inventive writer (even though he needs to brush up a bit on how to use the treacherous apostrophe, and look up fancy words like "heretofore" before he throws them in).

If this session was really taking place, and the producer was as big a shot as MM makes him out to be, MM's blow-by-blow documentation of what's going on would be extremely reckless and, dare I say it, unprofessional. Heck, the big hullabaloo he raised over the 192 without doing any double checking was reckless, but what he's currently doing, if true, might be a career ender for him.

I would think that if you're in the upper echelon of a biz like this in a place like LA, and a large number of people supposedly know your true identity, you don't go posting stuff like that in a public forum. Discretion is part of being a pro. Perhaps you might talk about these kinds of things with your wife and maybe a trusted friend or two late at night after a few beers, but a public forum?

If he exists, and this account is accurate, that famous, big-time producer is not going to be amused when he eventually reads MM's accounts portraying him as a buffoon. In MM's high-test world, I would think that might be a "you'll never work in this town again" offense. Just as MM is concerned about keeping his identity somewhat of a mystery, important producers don't want their confidential dealings and project details exposed on websites. This is stuff you talk about decades from now on "Behind the Music."

This has got to be mostly fiction, or perhaps a somewhat fictionalized account of a project that happened long ago. MM is pulling everyone's leg again. Either that, or deep down he really wants out of the recording business (perhaps he feels the technology has passed him by) and he's engaging in risky behavior so that it comes to pass.

Then again...

Is there any remote possibility that the producer is Dave Madden, and that the drummer is Jeremy Gelbwaks? Perhaps they'll have to replace Jeremy with Brian Forster. Brian's feel is so much better. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Lee I sure hope you're right about this being at least partly fictional otherwise... ouch!... I would hate to be that drummer if he ever reads this thing. Like you said, maybe better if left off of a public forum. MM, if they gave out grammys for "best karma during a recording session" I don't think you'd be in the running if they read this thread of yours.

Lee,

You're right, MMs story is pure Bull ****, but it makes for great entertainment. Unless his career has hit rock bottom and he's working in some cracked-out project studio in Van Nuys, I doubt anything he writes is true.

Hey MM... I love the name "Willy Show", keep 'em comin'! LOL!

Where does MM find the time to write all that crap if he's so busy working on a big record? Maybe he'll talk about the Digi rep. that ran off with his wife and expose the real reason why he hates Pro Tools so much.

I wish I knew which studio he's talking about so I never book time there...

I, for one, enjoy taking comfort in other people's job misery and have read along in wonder as I, too, have worked with another of the world's worst drummers.

Strewth about the poor apostrophies, or should I say "apostrophy's." Why don't people understand possessive nouns?
