Paul on Al Schmitt
So sad to hear of the passing of my friend Al Schmitt.
Al was the lead engineer in charge of the 'Kisses on the Bottom' session and was a fantastic guy besides being one of the world’s great engineers.
He always had a twinkle in his eye and was ready for a laugh but most importantly when we had done what we thought was a good take and went into the control room to hear the playback it sounded fantastic. His self-effacing skills always came through.
I send my love to his family and will always remember him with great fondness. Thanks for everything Al.
Lots of love,
