    Me, from what I can see and hear I'd love to work with Marius de Vries. He's everything I'd want in a studio; bright, risk taking, extremely talented and confident. Seems like a very nice man too in this month's Sound on Sound!!
    (That Melodyne software looks v.cool BTW).

    Anyone else?


    PS Wouldn't fancy that new arm - waving graemlin in the studio. It's silly.

    I'd love to work with the Black Crowes one day. The Melvins might be fun too.

    for me it's Santana. followed him since 74. The percussion and free style rock is magic to me; puts me in a trance. I get tired of the 10 min. solo's sometimes but Santana to me is one positive journey.
    Here's me pretending I'm Santana.


    sorry to spam myself. I seldom get the spotlight here. ;)

    Pink Floyd....I would love to make the magic that goes into their songwriting and recordings. Plus to see my guitar hero David Gilmore at action would be the nuts!! I've been a huge Floyd fan for the longest time!! Imagine Floyd back with Waters(ya right!!) man, the story they would tell thru their music...

    I think Radiohead would be one of the ultimate for me. Extremely talented songwriters and musicians. Social D or Bad Religion would be a close second.

    Ben Folds is a big one for me, with or without the 5. Great songs, and playing and attitude.

    I always thought working with Green Day would be fun. Every live performance I've seen on TV they seem to really have their $*^t together musically. Put up mics and have fun.

    I'd love to have my band produced by Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake.

    Jay - didn't do the Black Crows - but just worked with Mark Ford, which was great.

    My favorite person to work with? Uru, no question about it. Why? Just go and have a look ;) http://www.mp3.com/uru
    I think that will explain it all

    1) Great, new, young bands.
    2) Great solo acts surrounded by my session player chums.
    3) No signed act on the planet.

    My publishing Co venture got nearly a quarter page mention in this weeks Music Week (page 8) - the UK's version of 'Billboard'. Ain't nothin but new acts going to sign up to my company! Besides, my primary buzz I have learned, is working with acts 'early on'.

    Jules, so what happens when one of your fresh new acts gets signed and starts to develop and mature, will you drop them then?!!

    Mabey stick with them, sure. Repeat work is cool too, the senario you suggest does occur with me from time to time!


    I don't know why but I am facinated by the career paths of some of the more weird producers..

    Phill Spector, hard to find one person that has a nice thing to say about working with him..

    Tod Rundren, admits he does one (great) album with folks, but never gets asked back!

    Brian Eno invented a pack of flash cards to help him make decisions in the studio.

    Let's hear it for the weirdos!

    I've always dug Don Was. I got to work with Rocky George for a week back in June and that was pretty cool. I remember watching Suicidal Tendencies videos on Headbangers Ball back in the day when I was about 10 or 11.

    and, i'd still love to work with you, jules. cities in the dust still holds it's own against the current musical landscape.

    Probably Paul Wickliffe, Ed Cherney and Kooster McCallister. Don't care who the groups are, but with any of these guys you pretty much get every thing you'd need in the way of quality talent. Paul does wonderful jazz, Ed does great stuff with great people both in and out of the studio, and who can beat Kooster at the helm during a live recording?

    Seems the question mostly meant talent to you guys, but to me, it's the guys recording the talent. That way I get to hear the talent AND still learn something in the process.

    Two words... The Cure! Robert Smith would top my wish-list. He's got his own thing and I really admire that - the guy never tried to be anything but himself.

    Also, always wanted to work with Toad the Wet Sprocket, but they broke up. Fugazi and Over the Rhine are a close tie for third. I know, it's an odd collection of favs.

    Sorry I've been out of the loop so long gang. It's good to be back on the board.
