Whether you're an aspiring knob twiddler or just curious about the studio engineer behind some of the Beatles' best albums, you shouldn't miss Geoff Emerick
, who's at the Rock Hall tonight. His studio savvy elevated Revolver
, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
, and the White Album
. As a producer, Emerick applied a lush orchestral sheen to many other records, including Elvis Costello's 1982 baroque classic, Imperial Bedroom
. Emerick recently penned Here, There, and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles
, and he'll discuss his five decades in the music biz tonight. He'll also talk about working with artists as diverse as Cheap Trick and Kraftwerk.
Wed., April 19, 7 p.m.
