Rock Music Producer. He is best know for his contributions to rock music bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s, most notably his association with "Led Zeppelin" and "The Rolling Stones". The younger brother of producer Glyn Johns, he took to music at an early age and by his early teens, and his brother guided him into the industry. He began his career as a tape operator at the Olympic Studios in London, England and gradually worked his way to mixer and engineer, initially on albums by rock bands "Humble Pie" and "Jethro Tull". His first significant effort was as a mixer on the 1969 "Blind Faith", which was followed by his engineering on the song "Thank You" from "the album "Led Zeppelin II". When "Led Zeppelin III" was recorded by the group, he had a hand in the entire album and on the following untitled album (unofficially called "Led Zeppelin IV"), considered by many as being one of the greatest rock albums of all time, Johns served as both a mixer and engineer. Additionally, his influence was felt on both Led Zeppelin's "Houses of the Holy" (1973) and "Physical Graffiti" (1975) releases. His work with The Rolling Stones was abundant, as he co-engineered their album "Sticky Fingers" (1971) and collaborated with his brother Glyn on "Exile on Main Street" (1972). On "Goats Head Soup" (1973), he was elevated to chief engineer. During the 1980s, Johns focused on producing and yielded the co-effort "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" (1991), by Van Halen. He remained active within the industry until his death.
