Andy Johns’ family says he died Sunday in Los Angeles after a brief hospital stay to treat complications from a stomach ulcer. He was 62.
Johns was born in England and started his career at Olympic Studios in London. He went on to produce dozens of classic rock ‘n’ roll albums including the Stones’ “Exile on Main Street.”
Johns is survived by his wife Annette; sons Evan, Jesse and William; grandchildren Lennon, Everly, Charlie and Luca; sister Susan Johns; and brother Glyn Johns.
Glyn Johns is also a producer and engineer who has worked with artists including the Who, the Beatles and Eric Clapton. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.
