What is it really like to be a professional touring soundman? While some might believe it’s little more than lugging gear and pushing a few buttons, Heil Sound alum Randy Burton will be the first to tell you it’s much, much more than that.
In this episode--the second half of a two-part interview--Randy dives into stories from the road and shares his perspective on what it really means to be an effective sound engineer and work effectively with artists who are often insecure. You’ll also hear about how he was hit in the head with Pete Townshend’s guitar, how he almost witnessed the demise of Journey’s frontman, Steve Perry, and why he thinks B.B. King is such a nice guy.
Randy’s stories and insights will entertain and inspire you in your own journey as a music fan, sound buff, or fan of classic rock ‘n roll.
