Throughout the '90s and beyond, Brendan O'Brien
has established himself as one of the premiere rock producers. His distinctive touch, epitomized by guitars that push the needle into the red and a massive drum and bass sound, has helped propel albums by Pearl Jam
, Stone Temple Pilots
, the Black Crowes
, Matthew Sweet
, Train, and Rage Against the Machine
(just to name a few) to great success. The Atlanta native, who was also a member of the Georgia Satellites
for a period in the '80s, would also go on to head the Epic imprint 57 Records.
