••• As you'll notice, my session-playing was most centered around the 80's. It was never just a job, nor something I was raving about. It was a bit like supporter-acting, since I was to work as a 'faire-valoir' to the main actor (the Artist), moulding my visions to this of the director (the record producer), yet bringing my own character. Most of the time there was no script for me (how do you tell what a synth should sound like, other than miming some existing stuff ?).

••• I've always prefered the word 'guest', with or without the 'star' suffix.

••• I've been far less sollicited in sessions since I've reached the 'producer' status, which people presumed made me 'too expensive' to hire. Hence the too-apparent decline in session activity. I do not regret it, although I do miss some of it sometimes. Just like acting, it's a perfect character workout. A matter of balance probably.
