Rick Rubin: In the Studio new book release date announced
This is something that has pique my interests, an in depth book about Rick Rubin: In the Studio. Early in his career, Rick Rubin was synonymous with making great hip hop productions and starting Def Jam with Russell Simmons from his NYU dorm room. Cut to 2009/2010 while now based in Los Angeles, Rick Rubin is still producing some of the today's music greats. In the coming months, I look forward to hearing his production cut(s?) off of The Clipse's new album "Till The Casket Drops" and of course, more great music productions to follow.

On August 11, ECW Press will issue the 300-page book "Rick Rubin: in the Studio" by biographer Jake Brown. Nearly three years of meticulous research went into the making of the book, which documents the roots of Rubin's rise as one of the industry's most singularly influential record producers and A&R men, chronicles the making of such ground-breaking Def Jam-era classic LPs as the BEASTIE BOYS' seminal "License to Ill" and RUN DMC's "Raising Hell", his legendary, career-resurrecting collaboration with Johnny Cash, and of course, Rubin's countless successes in the studio with such wide-ranging rock/metal superstars as the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, SLAYER, AUDIOSLAVE, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, WEEZER, DANZIG, THE CULT, LINKIN PARK, METALLICA and others.
