Engineer (Led Zeppelin, Untitled)

Glyn Johns (born February 15, 1942 in Epsom, Surrey, England) is a musician, recording engineer and record producer.

He has worked with such artists as Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Easybeats, The Band, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, The Clash, The Steve Miller Band, Small Faces, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Blue Öyster Cult, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Midnight Oil, New Model Army, Belly, Joe Satriani, Ronnie Lane, Rod Stewart with Faces, Gallagher and Lyle, Georgie Fame, Family, Helen Watson and many others.

In the 1960s, while associated with the The Presidents rock band, Johns began working as a recording studio engineer at IBC Studios, Portland Place, London and was able to take the band in during weekends and try his skills at production and recording. The Presidents was his first true production work and some of the original tracks are available to hear and record at the Sound Bite Page on The President's web site www.the-presidents.org.uk. In 1969, Johns was called upon to rescue the troublesome Get Back sessions for The Beatles. Johns compiled several versions of the album, which were all rejected by the band, before the project was eventually turned over to producer Phil Spector. Spector's version became the released album, which was retitled Let It Be.

Johns' subsequent work on the first three albums by the Eagles was fundamental in establishing the group's sound and style.

In 1971, he co-produced The Who's Who's Next, one of the most celebrated rock albums of all time. The band is also credited as co-producers.

Glyn Johns is the father of Ethan Johns and the older brother of Andy Johns, both accomplished producers in their own right. Ethan has worked with acts such as Ryan Adams and the Kings of Leon, and Andy has worked with acts such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Jimi Hendrix, either on his own or under the tutelage of Eddie Kramer.
