The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Peak Career …

I know I’ve only been at Colenso a few days.

I know I’ve had a career full of a variety of highs.

But recently, I achieved something that will never be surpassed.

You see I was asked by a music management team to put a ‘credentials’ together for another band they may want me to work with.

To help with that, I asked if they would be able to send me something that described how working with me was.

I got this.

Not just a brilliant statement. [Ignoring it’s an insult]

But signed.



Best credentials slide. Ever. Fact.

Though what is slightly worrying is I’ve been called an “asshole” by Richard Branson and Dan Wieden. Mind you, if I can get them to do the same thing for me, I will probably win – or be banned – from every piece of business forever.

Happy weekend … it’s been a hell of a great week.

And they say drummers are stupid.

This beats the time Coldplay’s manager told a conference he wanted to have me shot for the article I wrote on his band for MTV.

Except he meant it where Lars is obviously celebrating you in his own unique style. Like his drumming.

You are proof that being mean keeps them keen. Your ability to treat everyone the same is a special talent. And yes, that means I am saying you are an equal opportunity mischief maker.

You smoothie.

I remember when Richard called you an asshole. Though he said arsehole.

While he expressed it with good nature, you do know this is not the ambition you should have with your clients? Though they all seem to respect you and keep wanting to work with you so what do I know?
