All the time. Depends on the band/artist/circumstance. But I have a great hit list of bass players/guitar players/keys/drummers/horn players/strings/arrangers, etc. that I consult at will.
With Paramore, Ilan Rubin was a natural choice. Generationally similar to Paramore, with very fiery musicianship and great time and feel.
