There was a timbre that happened when the two voices would join that was unique and it was… you never heard that before. And I don’t think you’ve heard it since. Those two voices sing like that and sound like that for a reason. They were meant to sing together.” – Keith Olsen 💔 pic.twitter.com/TxAdhjTnM7

Saddened to hear Keith Olsen has died. Keith was a terrific producer, hits for everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Whitesnake. Was also a key source on two big stories for me (Buckingham Nicks LP for Bham News, and GVF for RS) Here’s a great pic of Keith with Ozzy. pic.twitter.com/nfZbQfXY4N
