November 14, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

He’s the guy Prince modeled himself on. He’s the guy who has to his name production credits on some the greatest records of all time over a 50 year career such as The Band, The Psychedelic Furs, Badfinger, Cheap Trick, XTC, Hall & Oates, New York Dolls, Patti Smith, Janis Joplin.
