Sound Man: Glyn Johns

Glyn Johns was just sixteen years old at the dawn of rock and roll.  His big break as a producer came on the Steve Miller Band’s debut album Children of the Future.  He went on to engineer and produce such iconic albums as Abbey Road with The Beatles, Led Zepplin’s and the Eagles’ debuts, Who’s Next by the Who, and many others.  In his memoir, “Sound Man,” set to be released on November 13, 2014, Johns take the reader on a tour of his world during the heady years of the sixties.  He was there during some of the most iconic moments in rock history including the Stones’ first European tour, Jimi Hendrix’s appearance at Albert Hall in London, and The Beatles’ performance on the roof of their Savile Road studio.  Over the last two decades, Johns’ career has shown no signs of slowing down.  He has worked with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Band of Horses, and most recently, Ryan Adams.  Please join us in welcoming Glyn Johns to the Clive Davis Theater for a discussion about his book and prolific career with Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman.
