“This was a big record for me because I got to mix it at the point when I was merely the studio house engineer. That rarely happens these days. The single, (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight, was a massive hit. It’s a great song. How can you go wrong with something so beautifully written? I’ve always said, ‘The best cure for a bad mix is a great song.’ But I think the mix is pretty good, too.
“I remember Kevin MacMichael fondly. We met again later when he joined Robert Plant’s band. He was a brilliant guitarist. He died in 2002 – lung cancer, I think. It was very sad. A really, really great guy and great guitar player. He always had such cool ideas up his sleeve.”
