    Sometimes a little humility—combined with tenacity—can go a long way. Consider the career of engineer/producer Kevin Killen, who was willing to start at the bottom rung of the ladder not once, not twice, but three times before he finally broke through to the pinnacle of his profession, manning the board for the likes of U2, Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello, Jewel, Lindsey Buckingham, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, and Paula Cole. Rewind the tape to 1979, when a young Killen began working… View this story

The band manager? The promoter? The people buying tickets to the show? The people that own the venue? The sound company I’m working for? It can be tough to figure. The easy answer is you work for who pays you, but it can be a bit more… View this story
