CAVEMAN! Produced by Kevin Shirley

"What does a Record Producer do?"

I started writing my reminiscences after so many people asked me "What does a Record Producer do?", "Do you actually get to meet the stars?", "How was it working with Jimmy Page?", "Why do you and Steven Tyler have a little acrimony between you?", "Is Steve Perry a nice guy?", etc., etc.

So, instead of only regaling the tales for the bands, and subsequently retelling them for my long-suffering engineers, I embraced the cathartic task of writing them down - very tongue-in-cheek. Now I'm not pretending to be Tom Robbins (my favorite author), but I wish he'd write more, so you'd have more amazing stories to read. In the meantime, there are 4 chapters of my writings at top right.

Please leave comments, as I need all the help I can get.

The correct sequence of the chapters is:

1. Chapter 1 * New York City - November 1996 * Aerosmith
2. Chapter 5 * Innocence Lost
3. Chapter 19 * My First Visit To America * The Lime Spiders
4. Chapter 28 * Nashville, TN - July 1994 * The Divinyls

The rest of the book has both life stories, and chapters on Rush, Dream Theater, Silverchair, Journey, Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes, Iron Maiden, H.I.M, Bon Jovi, Slayer and many others.

I do hope you enjoy these.......

Kind Regards,
Kevin Shirley

This will be awesome. I'm a big fan of your work, which I didn't actually realise until I started my Sound Engineering course at Adelaide Uni. I somehow owned a lot of your production work, particularly with Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin and Slayer. I've been trying to track down some of your earlier stuff for my producer project (that's right I chose you), back from your South African days, but that has been pretty difficult.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing what you write, it should prove very interesting indeed.

Regards
Jake

Can't wait to read it! I wish this book reveals all the dirt under the carpet and is not just another official biography portraying everything ideally. How did Kevin cope with compromising the sound because of Harris' mix decisions on Dance Of Death, how he copes with the "produced by Kevin Shirley & Steve Harris" reality in general etc...

Kevin - I just finished reading all the chapters...amazing read!!!
You produced THE best drum sounds for DT's "Falling into Infinity" album, IMO. Can't wait to read that chapter!!
All the best,
