RSR073 - Ken Stringfellow - The Posies, Big Star & REM

My guest today is Ken Stringfellow, a musician, songwriter, producer, arranger who formed the power pop band The Posies in 1988 with Jon Auer. Notably he was an important part of reviving the band Big Star, one of the most acclaimed and legendary groups of all time. Ken also spent ten years on the road, and in the studio with R.E.M, and continues to record and release his own records, and has recorded and produced many other artists like: Damien Jurado, the Long Winters, China’s Hanggai, Snow Patrol, Neil Young, Patti Smith, Mudhoney, Death Cab For Cutie, The Head & The Heart, and many others.

Sometimes production is trying to equal a song. But a song can survive any kind of production and its essence would still come through.

The fact that I never have made a million dollars is a good thing. I need to keep working.
