Engineer (Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin III, Untitled, Houses Of The Holy, Physical Graffiti, Coda)

Andy Johns is a prolific engineer and producer.

Johns, the younger brother of famous Olympic Studios engineer Glyn Johns, attended The King's School, Gloucester, England in the mid to late 1960s. Before his nineteenth birthday, he was working as Eddie Kramer's second engineer on classic recordings by Jimi Hendrix and many others. In a career spanning more than thirty years, he has engineered or produced records by artists ranging from Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones to Van Halen and Rod Stewart, whose sales total in excess of 160 millions copies.

Johns' main references are Led Zeppelin's IV and The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street. His classic sound is perhaps found on Free's album Highway, which he engineered and produced.

Johns died on 7 April 2013, after a short stay in a Los Angeles hospital being treated for complications from a stomach ulcer. He was 62. Johns is survived by his wife Anet; sons Evan, Jesse and William; grandchildren Lennon, Everly, Charlie and Luca; and sister Susan Johns.
