    Pro-Tools-Expert.com broke the tragic news today - legendary producer/engineer Andy Johns passed away today.

    From Examiner.com:

    Legendary rock producer Andy Johns dies at 61: Worked with Zeppelin and Stones

    Andy Johns was one of rock’s most iconic engineers and producers. The 61-year-old English music legend had his hand and expertise on some of rock and roll’s seminal albums including six Led Zeppelin and several Rolling Stones records. Artist’s like Eric Clapton, Blind Faith, and Free, along with 80s hard rock staples like L.A. Guns, Van Halen and Cinderella were all recipients of his massive talents. Johns was fortunate enough to learn from the best including Eddie Kramer (Kiss, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper).

    With Kramer he was able to work as second engineer on recordings by Jimi Hendrix and many others at famous sound studios like Record Plant and Electric Lady in New York City, New York.

    Johns began his career as a tape operator for Olympic Studios in London where he worked with Rod Stewart, Jethro Tull and Humble Pie. He worked with the Rolling Stones from 1968-1973 helping to capture the sounds for “Exile On Main Street” from Keith Richards’ mansion in the South of France.

    Johns family tree is ripe with sound engineering talent. His brother Glyn Johns has worked with countless high profile musical artists including The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Who.

    Johns was the father of Hurt’s former drummer, Evan Johns and rock singer/guitarist Will Johns, and uncle of producer Ethan Johns (son of Glyn Johns) who helmed records by Ryan Adams, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Kings of Leon.

    Was wondering why no one posted that shit up in here after it was all over VHND.
    Mods please flush this down the toilet.

    No disrespect intended, but from what I understand and have seen Andy Johns abused his body for years, it doesn't shock me to hear this but it is no less sad.

    He was in poor health when he did the CF record. It also prevented him from doing CFIII. Not a shock at all to hear he passed but still a huge loss.
