Rock Legend Brian Johnson Set to Become Planet Rock Host

He’s undoubtedly one of rock’s greatest frontmen and Planet Rock – who already count legends Alice Cooper and Joe Elliott on their presenter roster – are proud to welcome true rock n’ roll royalty Brian Johnson, to the station as the host of a brand new 5-part series, ‘The Producers’.

The weekly show will see Brian exploring the lives of some of the world’s most renowned rock producers including Queen’s Roy Thomas Baker, Metallica’s Bob Rock and Foo Fighters’ Nick Rasculiecz. Listeners can expect exclusive insight from the men who have mixed their magic to bring rock’s biggest albums to life, from the tracks they love to the anecdotes from their time sharing the studio with the bands they’ve worked so closely with.

Having recorded some of the most globally successful rock albums of all-time alongside the world’s greatest sound-men, Brian was the perfect choice to present ‘The Producers’ for Planet Rock.

Ric Blaxill, Content Director of Planet Rock said ‘The quality of rock producers that we interviewed required a series host with rock credibility and an in depth understanding of how producers work with bands to create a distinct sound. Brian is without doubt the perfect person to host the series with his incredible experience as a musician and as one of rocks’ most distinctive vocalists ever. We are very honoured to have Brian joining Planet Rock for this landmark series.’

Brian Johnson commented ‘Having been fortunate to work alongside some of the best producers in rock,  it’s great to be part of this show with Planet Rock. To be able to shine a light on how a producer captures a moment in the studio and turns it into rock and roll dynamite, is the dogs bollocks. Being able to listen to these guys talk about what they do best is a joy. Planet Rock is the authority for all things rock so, where else would one want to be for this kinda show?’

Listeners can hear the first episode of the 5-part series this Sunday 3rd July at 7pm, with Brian delving into the life of Aerosmith and Metallica producer Bob Rock.
