Butch Vig is a highly respected musician, producer, and engineer, known for his innovative work in the alternative rock genre. He is perhaps best known for his work as the producer of Nirvana's breakthrough album, "Nevermind," which is widely considered one of the most influential albums of the 1990s. In addition to his work with Nirvana, Vig has also produced albums for a diverse range of artists, including Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, and Foo Fighters. With a career spanning several decades, Vig has established himself as one of the most talented and versatile producers in the industry, renowned for his ability to capture the raw energy and emotion of a recording while also pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the studio.

I feel like Rick has really tapped into something with these long form interviews. Where else can you hear directly from LEGENDS like Butch Vig or Billy Corgan or Sting or Maynard James Keenan or Derek Trucks and hear their stories. Rick asks the questions we would ask and has a comfortable nature that seems to bring out the best stories. I have always enjoyed the Rick Beato content, but these interviews are special. Extremely unique and fascinating content that you cannot get anywhere else. Keep it up Rick!

Everyone has already said it, but I gotta double down. Rick, you are going to go down in history as one of the most important historians of rock music. These interviews are priceless. The questions you ask are so precise and beautiful and brings out so many amazing stories and detail. And of course who better than someone who understands and knows the legacy of all these brilliant instruments, tech, and musicology can be the one to make this happen. Thank you for being awesome and producing this amazing content. And Butch was fascinating to listen to.

Butch is a humble dude and every year (except Covid year) comes back to Madison and does a benefit with local and international musicians for a benefit called Joey's Song. Dude gives back to the community that continues to RESPECT what this man does with music. 23:17 Miking drums. Rock on Butch Vig.

One of the coolest things in this interview is where they talk about lining up the next Pumpkins record in the wake of the world changing Nevermind, and how much pressure Butch was under to deliver something equally successful. Normally, there would have been a lot of doubt about anyone being able to pull the same trick again, but in this case the result was an album that was as big, powerful, and successful as it was unique and defining in its own right. Siamese Dream might not have represented the same musical revolution that Nevermind did, but it came as close as anything ever could and was without a doubt one of the most iconic albums of the 90’s.

These interviews are gold 🏆 Recorded at Smart a couple of times in the 80s before the big records happened, back when Tar Babies and Killdozer records were the big things on their wall. Butch and Steve Marker are beautiful dudes and it was pure love in that scruffy studio. What a joy to be there with them. Love those guyz they R total working class heroes 🙏

Hands down one of the best interviews I've watched in my life.. I couldn't stop watching it.. and so many technical details combined with memories of hearing this material on the radio when it was first dominating the airwaves... what a wonderful time where artists/musicians/producers/engineers met with technology to create something so organic and genuine that we don't have in music today

This is incredible, really something special and it really shows how fantastic both Rick and Butch are as human beings. I can't thank you enough Rick for making this happen, the inside baseball on recording both Nirvana and the Pumpkins is priceless. A quick thought on rock being dead, I think of bands like Silversun Pickups especially as a great example of loud rock still being relevant. Cheers all.

Personally speaking, this is the most enjoyable interview you've ever done Rick. Gish, Nevermind, and Siamese Dream are 3 of my most listened to albums ever (I'm just about 40). I've always thought Garbage is a pretty great band. To get this insider view, and to see just how deliberate and down-to-earth Butch freakin' Vig is, has me smiling from ear to ear. I was just captivated by this interview from start to finish. Thank you both.

Would entirely agree with you, however, I have been looking into some of these AI music creation apps and I got to tell you, it's actually pretty damn good. Now, I don't think it's at the level that we're talking here, you cannot artificially make songs like the one's from Nirvana or the Pumpkins. But we're also just scratching the surface of AI created music. In 5 years, who knows if you could tell the difference between a song made by a human, or an app.

@Dio Dimebag Kilmister Musicians will use AI as part of the creative process. Can guarantee if the Beatles were starting out now, they would find a way to use it. They loved all the latest technology. Just hope Paul and Ringo don't use AI John and George now, that would sound horrible😂

For all of us lovers of 90s rock, we’ve pieced together little snippets of his interviews here and there, but your interview beautifully fills in the background color and detail - in a way we’ve always hoped to know and see. Masterful interview, and Butch clearly connected with you. Thank you so much for this. Waiting for part 2 someday….

It's amazing what all goes on behind the scenes. Most people wouldn't have a clue about what it takes to make a recording. Of course the digital age has made things easier but the analog days of cut and splicing with tape is a whole different ball game. Personally, the analog tape production like the needle piercing the vinyl sounds more organic and that extra work seems to pay off.

@marceror As a 67 year old recording engineer, I too remember most every piece of gear I've used on most everything!

It comes down to the LOVE you have, and hence those memories will stay with you forever!

This was such an interesting interview Rick! I would love to see you interview Brian Eno to hear him talk about his production and solo work. It would also be super fascinating for you to get Jerry Cantrell on. We need to see some Alice in Chains interviews on here! I think it would be fascinating to hear his thoughts on each record and also his solo work (which is amazing).

Phenomenal interview, Rick! Great interesting insights and nice conversation to follow, even for somebody who is not so much into recording technique etc., but who is just interested in music in general! Greetings from Germany and all the best to you!

.... This is excellent. One of the best interviews on recording/producing/engineering I've ever seen. Butch Vig is one of those guys who just knows the recording process in totality & can explain it in words anyone can understand. And he has great ears. One of the greats in the business for sure.

I don’t think I’ve enjoyed an episode more and I’ve enjoyed A LOT of your content! This is a master class in recording. I have been a big fan of Butch for a very long time. Well done. Thank you.

This has gotta be Rick’s best interview yet! I’m a novice at production but it’s easy to tell that this interview has something to teach producers at every level.

Yep. I'm just a dumb drummer, and even I was fascinated with all the thought that goes into the type of mics, eq, etc. The story of him slicing the tape parallel to only remove half the tracks was next level insanity; I've never heard of someone doing that before.

Rick, you are interviewing all the heroes of my youth. These videos are treasures to me and endlessly fascinating. While my dream of being a rockstar never came to be, that fire in my belly for 90’s rock music (and all kinds of music) has never dwindled. Something about the way these songs, artists, and era can grab your soul is priceless, and you’re bringing a real face to these heroes of mine. I may never get to hang out and chat with any of these folks, but you are doing it for me! Keep it up!

It's a credit to the talent and musicianship of Nirvana and the Smashing Pumpkins that 30 odd years later two music legends are still talking about their songs and breaking them down. Thank you for your hard work, the respect you show your guests and the contribution you make to fans of rock music Rick, it's very much appreciated.
