The new Johnny Cash film “Walk The Line” got me thinking about music producer extraordinaire Rick Rubin.
Rick Rubin is my favorite kind of producer. He loves and understands all genres of music. All that matters is that it’s good. He’s a master of his craft and has a complete understanding of what’s come before him. Rick got Johnny Cash the respect he deserved and he should be worshiped for this alone. However, he’s also given us timeless albums by groups as diverse as Run-DMC, The Cult, Neil Diamond, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Public Enemy, The Mars Volta, Paloalto, Tom Petty, Slayer, Jay-Z, System Of A Down, The Beastie Boys and Nine Inch Nails. Enough said.
This playlist contains some of my favorite Rick Rubin produced tracks.
