My guest on the podcast this week is the legendary Terry Manning, who’s had successful careers as a record producer, audio engineer, photographer, composer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and visual artist.
Over his career, Terry has worked on some huge hits with Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Otis Redding, Joe Walsh, Shania Twain, Al Green, Lenny Kravitz and many more.
He’s also worked as a photojournalist for New Musical Express and has photographed Chuck Berry, Procol Harum, Jimi Hendrix, Dusty Springfield, as well as capturing Martin Luther King Jr on film the day before his assassination.
During Part 1 of the interview we spoke about being hired at Stax Records by Steve Cropper, the difference between American and English engineers, working with Otis Redding, his relationship with Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin, and much more. Part 2 comes next week.
On the intro I’ll take a look at the current trends for hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and the best song tempo to listen to when studying.
