Given that he’s helmed albums from the likes of The Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Neil Diamond, it would be difficult to argue that there’s a more versatile producer than Rubin. It’s hard to define exactly what he brings to a record, but in most cases, the key word is success. A 2009 nomination for his work on Metallica’s Death Magnetic emphasised that, whatever it is he has, it’s still working.
“His work with Johnny Cash was great.” (Thanks, longjaw)
“He can make a difference to any band in any genre.” (Thanks, Gort)
"Rubin - the best around, no question." (Thanks, Simon)
