In the late 1960s and 1970s, Johns was in demand on both sides of the Atlantic and worked with American acts such as the Steve Miller Band, and the Eagles. His opinion hasn’t softened over time — two years ago he told the Rock Hall audience that “shame he wasn’t locked up earlier, really, wouldn’t have played with my record. Another story has Johns in Los Angeles attending a party at Roman Polanski’s house and meeting his pregnant wife Sharon Tate. I took it all out, realizing very swiftly that airing your dirty laundry is not what the book should be about at all. He quit working with The Rolling Stones multiple times because they wouldn’t focus in the studio, leaving him endlessly waiting for them to get it together.

Iconic Producer Andy Johns on Recording with Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones and the 1176". Johns engineered and co-produced the first two albums by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, which provided the hits " If You Wanna Get to Heaven" and " Jackie Blue". Glyn Johns is the older brother of the producer and engineer Andy Johns (1950–2013), [151] who began as an engineer with Jimi Hendrix under the tutelage of Eddie Kramer, [152] and like Glyn Johns, worked with the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.

Glyn doesn’t mince words on his opinion of the Spector version of the record, writing in Sound Man that “Phil Spector … puked all over them, turning the album into the most syrupy load of bullshit I ever heard. Johns has little interest in lingering long over the specifics of capturing sound and he unfailingly credits the musicians and bands he worked with as being the main reason the classic recordings that he worked on continue to sound as good as they do. The book was the first time I've ever really used the press for a purpose, and I was trying to sell my book.
