Before his illustrious career started.
Nigel Godrich shared an interesting glimpse into his early years today with an old rejection letter he received after reaching out to Abbey Road studios for a job in 1990.

Don’t feel too bad for Godrich though, he worked his way up from studio assistant to engineer over several album recording jobs and eventually producing a track for one band he was working on. That song was ‘Black Star’, that band was Radiohead and flash forward a few amazing decades and the guy is getting offered cameos in Star Wars movies. Things worked out just fine.
