Staff Reviews


This illuminating look into the life of the legendary Glyn Johns is one of my favorite music autobiographies I've ever read. While it may not be as hard-hitting or muck-raking as some others you'll find, Johns has a wonderful gift for storytelling. Every chapter is a bite-sized look at a specific moment in his long career, and the amount of talent this man worked with is staggering. You get early glimpses into the careers of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and many more. This is a must-read for fans of classic (or modern) rock. — Chris Linendoll

Description


Born just outside London in 1942, Glyn Johns was 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, and he went on to engineer or produce iconic albums for the best in the business including Abbey Road with the Beatles. Even more impressive, Johns was perhaps the only person on a given day in the studio who was entirely sober, and so he is one of the most reliable and clear-eyed insiders to tell these stories today. In this entertaining and observant memoir, Johns takes us on a tour of his world during the heady years of the sixties. He remembers helping to get the Steve Miller Band released from jail shortly after their arrival in London, he recalls his impressions of John and Yoko during the Let It Be sessions, and he recounts running into Bob Dylan at JFK and being asked to work on a collaborative album with him, the Stones, and the Beatles, which never came to pass. Johns was there during some of the most iconic moments in rock history, including the Stones' first European tour, and the Beatles' final performance on the roof of their Savile Row recording studio.
