Meet Garth Richardson, my Top 10 co-host this weekend for a special occasion. This weekend is the Jack Richardson London Music Awards, a show in tribute to this man’s father, a legendary producer, former Fanshawe College professor and pioneer of the Music Industry Arts program and mentor to many young musicians. Garth has an impressive resume on his own and runs The Farm Studios and teaches at Nimbus School of Recording and Media in Vancouver. Now for the stories…
Can you believe how this guy showed up to the studio? He said I was only allowed to ask questions if we play pong. Every ball that goes in a solo cup leads to a question…this should be interesting, eh?
Hear the entire interview here:
#2 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Higher Ground
#3 KITTIE - Brackish
Garth Richardson produced most of the KITTIE discography and he’ll be a guest in their upcoming 20th anniversary documentary!
Here’s a sneak peek:
#8 The Guess Who - Clap For the Wolfman
Garth Richardson says this is the ONLY session with The Guess Who he wasn’t allowed into…sex, drugs, rock & roll (lots of ladies) as he was only 14 years old at the time.
#10 The Guess Who - American Woman
Jack Richardson produced most of The Guess Who discography you know and love including Wheatfield Soul, Canned Wheat, American Woman, and Road Food.
