I am not a rock star. Rock stars are temperamental and moody. Rock
stars demand that things be Just So and force you to adhere to their
demands and their schedules.
Me? I'm the guy you go to in order to get stuff done. I'm the guy
who overcomes the challenges created by temperamental, stubborn rock
stars. I'm the guy who works the hours to make the show a success.
I'm the guy who gets his hands dirty, who wears a vest with 40 pockets
to carry all the tools I have and I'm the guy who knows which pocket
to dip into to get just the right tool to solve this problem right
here, right now. I'm the guy who makes sure every connection is where
it should be, every important bolt is tightened down, and every piece
of necessary equipment is in just the right case to make sure it
arrives safe and undamaged where you need it to be.
Me? I'm the roadie.
Where are the job ads for people like me? Am I just fantasizing when
I think that employers would rather have folk around who focus on
getting things done - getting product out the door - rather than
focusing on their own egos?
Here endeth the rant. I don't have time to rant too much; I have
problems to solve and product to ship.
