Sound Man

In this entertaining and observant memoir, Johns takes us on a tour of his world during the heady years of the sixties, with beguiling stories that will delight music fans the world over: 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, Jimi Hendrix’s appearance at Albert Hall in London, and the Beatles’ final performance on the roof of their Savile Row recording studio.
Editor: I read this book and found it to be very informative to a real rock and roll music buff. You will learn a lot about the recording techniques used during the early and mid stages of the rock and roll era. You will also learn without a doubt what killed rock and roll. The writing style is more dry than say Mark Lewishon’s “Tune In” volume #1 about the Beatles. On this note, in my opinion you will never find a better book about the Beatles than “Tune In”.
