I sang my song to Mr Jimmy and he said one word to me and that was "dead"
Jimmy Miller (1942-1994) was a Record Producer
from New York
who became famous in The Sixties
and The Seventies
. He's probably the best example of the "Helping Hand Producer" trope we have around here, chiefly known for producing The Rolling Stones
' most highly acclaimed albums
: Beggars Banquet
, Let It Bleed
, Sticky Fingers
and Exile on Main St. And Goats Head Soup
Aside from the Stones, Miller also worked with bands like The Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith, Motörhead
, The Plasmatics and Primal Scream
His production style isn't really remarkable from other classic rock bands of the same era, apart from the fact that his productions tended to be grittier and bury the vocals in the mix.
Miller was also a musician, contributing backing vocals, drums and percussion to the aforementioned Stones albums. He came up with the famous
cowbell introduction to "Honky Tonk Women", for starters.
