now don't get goin' "groupie" on me.. I've had my fair share of working with "talent", but most are clients, associates and some have turned into friends because of the work enviornment. To answer your question yes I've worked with/for some pretty "big guns", but they are just like you & me. They walk the same streets, breath the same air, eat the same food as we do.
It's kind of the reason for the screenname. I've worked for EC on numerous occassions but the man is so much more than his guitar abilities. In '01 while on Clapton tour I fell 43ft from the back of PA and broke my back in 3 places. EC was one of first people at hospital, he stayed in contact almost daily through the rehab and he flipped ALL the medical costs out of pocket. He hired me back in '04 for the North American leg and threatened to "kck my ass if he saw me climbing or lifting anything".
It's just another job, just the stakes are a little higher than most
