Legendary producer Keith Olsen has passed away. I do think he belongs in music’s equivalent of The Good Place—even if, yeah, he did produce Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/12/arts/music/keith-olsen-dies.html …
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
