Talk Is Jericho: Bob Rock – Why Jimmy Page Loves St Anger

Talk Is Jericho: Bob Rock – Why Jimmy Page Loves St Anger

Super producer Bob Rock is from Winnipeg and has also worked with some of the biggest bands in music, like Metallica, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, and Canada’s favorite sons, The Tragically Hip! Bob does a deep dive into the writing and recording process for Metallica’s “Black” album and the controversial “St Anger.” He shares the one lyric suggestion he gave James Hetfield, the changes he helped the band make to the bass and drum sound, how he got James Hetfield to actually sing in the studio and the biggest differences between the process of the “Black” album versus “St. Anger.” He also recounts his time with Mötley Crüe, from their first meeting to their recent studio work with new guitarist John 5. He’s got great stories about David Lee Roth and Cher, and even more about The Tragically Hip and late singer Gord Downie. Bob explains how he and Gord came to collaborate on the new (and truly amazing) “Lustre Parfait” album (which was just released this month) and why it took so long to finish and release.
