....

Evderyone knows that pro sound engineers (As Bennett says, the good ones) have facial hair. A little bit of grey means that you must be really good.



So, that's the Big Mick's secret!

It seems the accordion is best left to other launguages, only they can understand the noise. And it should be a felony what the supposed great tex-mex guy did to Cash's the burning ring of fire, or that is where he will end up at for killing that song. And where were the stacks of Cerwin Vegas the Tejano bands like so much?

Hello folks I'm kinda smashed uhh I mean petty cash uhh Johnny trashed aww f*#k it I need a drink.

I hope facial hair and not head hair is a requirement.... I've pulled all mine out working with incompetents. Smile

No recent pics, but I've got a goatee.  Not long, trimmed close.  The rest of the crew I work with are at least trying to grow facial hair...boss gets a nasty neck beard. Rolling Eyes

I was just told yesterday that if I want to keep my casino A/V Lead gig I had to shave my goatee of 20 years by Monday. My face feels so cold. A few of the Entertainment crew quit over this unnecessary draconian rule. Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad

There it is, folks... proof that Rees is a dangerous subversive... holding THE weapon of musical destruction, the accordion!  In terms of fear and loathing, the banjo comes close, and only the highland pipes exceed the accordion.

{insert favorite banjo/accordion/bagpipe jokes here}

Don't let the genial, grandfather look fool you... this guy is dangerous. He answers only to the ghost of Myron Floren Shocked

Have fun, good luck.

I actually play both the piano (chromatic) accordion and the diatonic button accordion.



Please..... don't take up the bag pipes!

If you do, someone will be dispatched to have you "sized for concrete"   Laughing

My Father today asked if I was growing a beard. I have had one for two years and told him so. He said it was neither here nor there.

Cool, Paul!  Then I must be a friggin' genius!

(Or maybe, just a gray-haired idiot sound-vant.)  Twisted Evil

BTW, this picture is from a gig we did in Key West, FL in 2005; most of the brown hair is now gray or white, same as the sideburns. (Except for the part obscured by the captain's hat, which is mostly pink! Confused

Clockwise from top left.

John Meyer, Mark Terry(Harman), Hartley Peavey, Bruce Howze(Community), Ken DeLoria(Apogee etc), Ken Berger, Mick Hughes.

Hmmm. Must be a coincidence.
