The "No New Friends" rule is making it difficult to find a sound engineer.
"No New Friends" seems like an essential strategyâ€”especially, we imagine, when one is an international superstar, constantly being chased by disingenuous moochers (as Drake no doubt is). But at some point, you gotta accept a few new friends if you ever want to get anything done. What happens if 40 has a cold? What if Mike Zombie forgets his password to access Pro Tools? Our guess is Drake's refusal to accept "Occasional New Friends" as a business strategy has caused a few delays.
