Thanks from me too!!! Every so often, the way a records sounds jumps out at me, then I check the producer's credit and it's Butch Vig. Plus, Nevermind changed my life, and it is one of the reasons I'm a musician today.

Butch did 4 of the most important records of my (at the time) young musical life and is largely responsible for my incessant obsession with guitar tones. Thanks Butch, you are about my favorite producer indeed.

The 90's alternative scene has always been what I've grown up on and loved and so many classic albums from that decade were because of you Butch; thank you so much for bringing so many great bands to light - it's impacted me much more than you'll ever know!

Thanks for the detailed and thoughtful answers.
I'm really loving all the insider studio discussion, especially related to drums and drum recording.

Thank you very much, Butch and your crew! You have a had a hand in so many of my favorite albums. I grew up on Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins and Garbage... I'll bet that 80% of my CD collection is split between you and Andy Wallace, seriously.

You guys have been so kind and willing to share your experiences; it really means a lot! Thanks again!

By the way - I have picked up some great ideas from these topics, it's been very educational.

- Josh
