Whatever you think of Tony Visconti, that's some shitty, hack writing.

FAKE NEWS!

I am uncomfortable with the way everybody now speaks about David Bowie like he's some sort of alien Jesus. It's like how Prince has suddenly become acknowledged as the 20th century's greatest composer and world's best completely average guitar player, only even more so.

FM Steve's name being dragged into a conversation that has nothing to do with him in the hopes of sparking some controversy, that seems to be a thing that's been happening for decades.

Man, Steve must have been a huge dick to the Foo fighters when they recorded at electrical; probably why no one from that band has worked with him since.

Controlling, but gentle and compassionate. Is there any other way to be? He was always extremely gentle when inserting the sounding rod into my urethra. After a bit I had to plead with him to use more force.

How did it sound? Warm and punchy or cold and pokey?

Visconti has probably had beef with Steve since the In Utero sessions in ‘93 or whenever, when Albini and Kurt Cobain prank-called Eddie Vedder, convincing him it was Visconti on the line, and that he should record with a “proper” band. He agreed, according to Azerrad’s Come As You Are book.

Visconti is just jealous because despite the last name, he has never mastered Fake Italian.

Oh, bravo.

I heard that Bitch Visc was a far less controlling producer of a more successful Nirvana record.

The only Visconti that ever mattered was Luchino. :)
