_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,
