Good for him... lived a life that any of us would call a dream come true. Admired and respected by his peers, contributing to ground-breaking/timeless records, by all accounts had a tremendous good humour and zest for living.

Rock and Roll Heaven now has one more fabulous engineer...

Sad news - RIP AJ

Sorry to report that Andy Johns has gone to the studio in the sky. Really sad news. It doesn't get any more HIGH END than this.

Oh behalf of my friend John (Johnnie Burns):

Thanks Jim
I didn't know this bad news, I was in a band with him when we were " him 15 & me 16, young teen hopefuls! He after joining his brother @ Oympic Studios to train as as an engineer he managed to get me a job @ Morgan studios as tape opp/ tea boy. We were the very best of friends and shared an apartment together for some time.
I haven't seen him for 30 years but I spoke to him only 2 years ago.
A great loss to the music world!,,,
Andy Johns was an inspiration to many musicians and certainly to me as an engineer/ producer.

Andrew was a friend, we did a lot of studio and remote work and a ton of fun together.
Glyn and he had had a falling out years back.
I was in LA and Andrew calls me, "John, come out to the house, Glyn is going to stop by this evening, Jeanette is out and I want someone around."
Was present for the rapprochement.
Miss you buddy.
