RSR383 – Craig Parker Adams – Mixing Frank Zappa, John Lennon, and Yoko Ono Live at The Fillmore East 1971

What if you could meet your heroes? Craig talked about connecting with Eddie Van Halen to deliver long-lost Van Halen bootlegs, recording his own triple amp guitar setup, hanging out with Dweezil and Frank Zappa, and soloing John & Yoko's vocal mics.

My guest today is Craig Parker Adams owner of Winslow Ct studio in LA and accomplished guitarist and producer. Craig was a guest on episode RSR331 when he shared his background in music and talked about running the oldest recording studio in the world dating back to the 1900’s for the earliest sound for film productions.

Craig has worked with a great list of which unclides Frank Zappa and got a great write up in Rolling Stone about mixing Frank Zappa and the Mothers’ Epic 1971 Fillmore East Shows for the 50th-Anniversary Reissue 8-CD box set which includes band encores with John Lennon and Yoko Ono and even a recording of the infamous London’s Rainbow Bridge gig that left Zappa nearly paralyzed.
