Rock n’ Roll Read: Glyn Johns ‘Sound Man’

Take a look at your records, tapes and cds. His name appears on the credits of some of the greatest albums of all-time: Glyn Johns. Sound Man is the story of 50+ years in the music business on the other side of the studio glass.

The music producer and recording engineer offers behind-the-scene glimpses of his studio work with such artists as The Who, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, the Clash, Howlin’ Wolf, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, John Hiatt, Emmylou Harris, the Faces, Linda Ronstadt, Humble Pie, The Band, Ryan Adams and many others.

Glyn Johns has recorded the best in music and many of his stories haven’t been told until now.

Sound Man gives you a look behind the studio glass with the premier engineer/producer of the classic rock era.
Sound Man gives you a look behind the studio glass with the premier engineer/producer of the classic rock era.

“My objective was not kiss and tell, but an observation of the industry over the last 50 years, how it has developed, and about the characters I’ve met,” he says. “I just love making records, and that’s never going to change. I can’t wait to get back in.”

Glyn Johns doesn’t have much interest in getting bogged down over specifics of capturing sound. If you’re a recording nerd and get off on the technical aspects of microphone placement, sound reinforcement, etc. there’s enough in Sound Man to learn a few tricks of his trade.

In Sound Man, Glyn Johns explains what a record producer actually does: guide musicians in “painting a picture in sound.”

Johns generously credits the musicians and bands he’s worked with as being the main reason the classic recordings continue to sound as good as they do.

Glenn Frey describes working with Johns in the Eagles book, Take It To the Limit: The Untold Story of the Eagles; “He was a complete tyrant. We were a really young group and he just lorded it over us. And he had worked with all the heavies, so we couldn’t really argue.”

Jimmy Page reportedly replaced Johns as the band’s engineer after Led Zeppelin’s first album in 1969 because he didn’t want any one particular engineer to be held responsible for the group’s trademark sound. That said, if you study the albums Glyn Johns has produced or engineered you begin to recognize his signature approach to the recording studio; clean and massive, sounding ‘live’ with lots of breathing room. It’s something Johns has achieved usually with few microphones and very little studio hardware or trickery.

Sound Man is a must read if you wonder how classic albums were made. Regular listeners of 100.3 The Q! hear Glyn Johns work on a daily basis and his work stands the test of time.

More New Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers have released the title track from their new album The Getaway.

The band’s 11th studio effort will be released on June 17th.

Bassist Flea said the name of the album was open to interpretation and gave us his thoughts on it: “For me, the way I think about it is, we all want to get away, you know. We all want to go be somewhere beautiful, doing something that we love, you know, something that really gets us in the moment and rockin’ and whether you’re a Syrian refugee or someone who’s tortured or — everybody wants a sanctuary to go to and it might just be like inside your own self, which is really the best one you could ever have. But that’s what it makes me think about.”

The first single from The Getaway, called “Dark Necessities,” arrived earlier this month. The new album was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by regular Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich.The Getaway is the first Chili Peppers album to be made without longtime producer Rick Rubin in 25 years.

The band’s next scheduled live appearance will be at the BottleRock Festival in Napa, California on May 29th.
