Butch Vig

Super-producer, musician and the mind behind some of the greatest albums of all time (Nirvana’s “Nevermind”, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, Foo Fighters, Green Day) joins us on this episode of Sound Sessions.

Butch Vig, founder of the historic, Smart Studios in Madison Wisconsin sits down with Michael and Kevin to discuss the latest Garbage album, Strange Little Birds.  A legend in his own right, Butch shares stories of his work with some of the most influential albums of the past 30 years.   He also looks back on memories of artists we’ve lost over the past year – (Did someone say…Hanging out with Motorhead front-man, Lemmy Kilmister, and sharing a drum set with Prince? Yes, this happened!)  And lastly, we discuss our mutual love for White Castle when coming through Chicago – Butch Vig, a true rock veteran and Midwestern Maestro.

Take a moment to listen in to the interview and enjoy the musings of Garbage producer/drummer, Butch Vig.

[Catch them live – Sat, Jun 18 at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park!]
