Rockpages - Vivian Campbell May 2022 Interview Quotes

Remote Recording For Diamond Star Halos

"Good and bad. Mostly good. Out of necessity we couldn't get together. Let me touch on the bad part first."

"The bad part, and this is only for me personally, is I am not very good with technology. Si I didn't have any sort of recording set up at home."

"I wasn't prepared for this record at all. I was prepared to go on tour in summer of 2020. And then all of a sudden everything changed and we were making a record."

"So I had a lot of panic. I had to call a lot of clever grown up friends who understand technology. I said 'I need to record, what do I need?'."

"So I had to get an interface. So there was a very rapid and very steep learning curve for me to get over this."

"But once I got over that. I mean I can't say that I got good at it. I didn't even get to the stage where I could edit anything. I would just record whole parts and even multiple times."
