Speaking of Jimmy Iovine...

Recommended Posts

Reading about the subscriber gift remixes reminded me that Jimmy Iovine produced Rattle and Hum, which reminded me of this amazing article that came out this week about the making of Patti Smith's / Bruce Springsteen's "Because the Night" which turns 40 this week.  Jimmy Iovine produced that too and basically willed it into being, as you'll read in the article.  And Bono has a bunch to say about it too!  Amazing insights into how great art happens.  (Also, Patti swears there was a rule back then among DJ's that there could only be one woman in the top 10 at a time?  And Debbie Boone was already there, so Patti was SOL?  So, so strange.)
