Today I am very pleased to present the third installment of my interview with producer and engineer John Haeny. And, although this is the final part of my current conversation with John, we will be talking more in the future, so you can look forward to more from John down the road sometime! Also, if you haven’t done so yet, please be sure to listen to parts one and two of John’s interview as well!
In this segment, John and I take a look at his vast discography and he allows me ask him about some of the many amazing artists that he’s had the pleasure of working with. I didn’t have time to ask him about everybody that I wanted to, but perhaps in the future I’ll get the opportunity to do so, we will just have to wait and see!
I initially learned about John when I came across his story regarding the making of Jim Morrison’s poetry album, “An American Prayer”. Although I’ve been a lifelong fan of the Doors, my fascination with this band was reignited a few years ago and I started listening to all of the Doors albums almost non-stop for several months. For some reason, I had never listened to “An American Prayer”, so I finally did, and after listening I wanted to learn more about how it came about, and that’s when I came across John’s website, which he had recently created at the time. If you have not yet read John’s story of the making of “An American Prayer”, I highly recommend it and you can find it here.
While John’s association with Jim Morrison is very important, and he no doubt treasures the time he got to spend with this special artist, he has worked with and become friends with lots of legendary musicians, while working in the very fruitful music scene of the 60’s, and 70’s. John was present during many special moments in musical as well as world history and I’ve really enjoyed all of his insights into these times in his life, and I look forward to hearing more from him in the future!
When I set out to do this podcast, my goal was to be able to speak to as many talented individuals as possible, whether fairly early in their careers or seasoned professionals, and I have been overwhelmed by the positive response from the listening audience as well as the eagerness of so many amazing people to agree to be interviewed! So, thanks to all of you who have been a part of this show so far, and thanks to all of you regular listeners, I am very grateful for you all!
Please enjoy this weeks episode, and have an amazing and productive week!
