Felix Pappalardi: Solving Modern Recording Problems
Jim Delehant, Hit Parader, March 1968
FELIX PAPPALARDI is a producer, but mainly a musician in the same sense that Steve Cropper is a producer-musician (see Steve Cropper HP Sept.). Before he got into producing and playing, Felix had been trained for a career in classical music. "I goofed off a lot but picked up a lot and left the rest behind." At the University of Michigan, he studied music literature and conducting. He learned how to read and write music and to play the viola and trumpet. As his interest in pop music grew, he learned to play rhythm guitar and electric bass with one of Tim Hardin's first groups. "Timmy and I feel that making mistakes is just fine."
