#FridayFive Butch Vig


I’m told that I should introduce myself. Hi, I’m Joseph, the “Partner in Crime.” I’m also the one who mostly wrote the Midnight Special post back in September (and my favorite E.L.O. song is Turn To Stone,) as well as the Six Degrees Of 90s Rock. Here I am again, with another Friday Five.


So without further ado...

Butch Vig not only played drums and co-produced albums for Garbage; he was also present in the studio for a few other artists. Some were commercial or critical successes. Others, not so much. This Friday Five is a sampling of his work in the booth.




Chainsaw Kittens – Connie, I’ve Found The Door, from “Flipped Out in Singapore”



Smashing Pumpkins – Cherub Rock, from “Siamese Dream”



Soul Asylum – Misery, from “Let Your Dim Light Shine”



Green Day – Know Your Enemy, from 21st Century Breakdown



Foo Fighters – A Matter Of Time
