Hello there,

First, thank you for your time and thoughts.

Space. That's my question.

Obviosuly you've worked in all sorts of spaces, what do you now find that tends to work best for you and how does that relate to both "vibe" and evironment versus acoustics, etc.

I'd just like to know what kinds of spaces and the materials around them that you like, both in sound and feel.

And if you could please indulge us, can you give us a good story about a magical moment in you working with U2... just a good story (hopefully a true one heh)

Thank you kindly.

The best way to create space in a blend is not to have too many ingredients but turn them up loud. In regards to physical space, it is staggering how different a guitar amp will sound from one room to another. I've had great results in smallish rooms with high ceilings. The room becomes an extension of the amplifier. The room becomes a speaker cabinet. The full bodied sound heard in that small room may be non-existent in a large warehouse room. The best rock and roll rooms in my experience have been rectangular rooms with tall ceilings.
