News Up in the Air: Jim Anderson Speaks
posted by December 17 at 13:40 PMon
Jim Anderson, the guru sound engineer from the Crocodile, has given The Stranger an exclusive statement.
Iím touched and honored by everyoneís kind words, interest, and concern. The band room at the Crocodile is my living room and the sound system is my home stereo.
My first wish would be that the Croc wouldnít miss a beat. I wish I could walk in there, turn on the switches, and have bands show up to play just like normal. But thatís not going to happen just yet. More conversations need to happen with ownership before I really know what I am going to do. Things are still up in the air.
For now, Iím going to enjoy a couple weeks off. This is the first time since 1991 I have gotten to take this much time off and not have a hospital involved. Iím going to let my ears stop ringing and see which way the wind blows.
I might go to Tokyo and see a sumo wrestling tournament. Thereís also a book I want to write. Maybe this a good time to start that.
I do know this: I will continue to run sound and I will stay in Seattle. As for where and when, thatís to be decided.
