Dude had quite a resume. Rest in peace.

Quote :
Producer Andy Johns has died at the age of 61.

The big-name deskman worked with the Rolling Stones between 1968 and 1973, and was behind their landmark 1972 album Exile On Main Street.

He produced Led Zeppelin IV in 1971. Among his other titles are two by Humble Pie, three by Free, Television’s Marquee Moon, Hughes/Thrall, Van Halen’s For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, three by LA Guns, Joe Satriani, Chickenfoot’s debut and many others.

As an engineer he worked many times with Zep and the Stones and also with Godsmack, Eric Clapton, Mott The Hoople, Joni Mitchell and more.

Fellow producer Kevin Shirley has paid tribute, saying: “Andy is a bona fide legend. I met him in New York with Pat and Zoe Thrall when he was very condescending to me at Ruby Foo’s over some cold sake.

“After listening to some of my work he became somewhat of a fan, according to my friend Pat Thrall, who witnessed him listening to one of my Aerosmith mixes for hours.

“Andy’s legacy is huge – The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin to name a couple. Wherever it is you go to, I know you’ll keep ‘em rocking! Love and respect in boatloads.”

The man worked with the Rolling Stones thru the best period of their career, and tho Jagger and Richards were loathed to work with producers (usually they chose to produce their own discs) he managed to get a co production credit from the lads, which is impressive in itself.

There is a great section in the Making Of Hollywood Forever doc where Johns is sitting in this throne like elevated chair and offering criticism/direction for some guitar parts. Never realized his resume was that loaded. I would be content with all those albums he's had a hand in on a deserted island. Not to mention Hollywood Forever is probably my favorite album of the last ten years. Sad we won't get anymore of his work. RIP

Recognized the name but couldn't place wher I had seen it before. Of course now that I've seen the list it comes in clear. Very extensive.
