I only worked with him twice, a few months before he passed away.

I was sitting with him and Don Was—we were doing this big concert for peace with the Dalai Lama—and Don showed me photos of the Stones' studio setup from the latest sessions they had just done. I asked about the mics and miking techniques, and Phil looked at the photos and started to talk about mics, miking techniques, how he created and started to use the chamber rooms—I think it was in Universal Studios or in New York City; I can't remember. Pretty wild stuff!

My other memory is of sitting with him while he told me how they did the Frank Sinatra Duets record, all remote controlled before there was really any Internet or even cell phones…pretty deep! I feel very lucky and fortunate to have met, worked and spent some time with Phil!
