Artists on Recording Techniques from Course Technology and written by Jeff Touzeau examines the recording process through an unlikely pair of eyes: those of the artist. Who better to share insights into capturing the creative process than the artists themselves? Everything from vocals to guitar and drums are covered through exclusive full-length interviews from author Jeff Touzeau's "Music, Etc." column in Pro Sound News and bonus material never printed before. These one-of-a-kind interviews are published here, unabridged and in their entirety, for the first time ever! The discussions dip into an array of musical styles and genres, providing insight into the recording process from such well-known pop and rock artists as Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran), Gerry Beckley (America), Steven Page (Barenaked Ladies), Joe Jackson, Tony Bennett, and John Fogerty. Artists on Recording Techniques provides musicians, audio technicians, engineers, studio owners, producers, equipment manufacturers, hardware and software designers, and music fans with a rarely seen window into the creative process of some of history's most legendary musicians.
