Andy Johns remembered

Andy Johns is a name that may not be known to all listeners of music, but all listeners of music have certainly heard some of the music he produced. In his career, which lasted from the late 1960s until just a couple days ago, as a producer and engineer, he worked with artists including Led Zeppelin , the Rolling Stones, Free, Rod Stewart, Wildside, Van Halen, Humble Pie, Television, Mott The Hoople, Joni Mitchell, Ron Woods, Cinderella, Autograph, Joe Satriani, LA Guns, Doug Aldrich, Bon Jovi and Steve Miller. (Pretty sweet repertoire!) Just a few days ago... on April 7th... Andy passed away from a stomach ulcer at his home in California, at age 62. RIP, bro... There weren't many guys like you out there, and as long as "rock and roll lives and breathes in the hearts of the young" (to quote Triumph) you will be remembered and missed by all.
