My guest today is Derrick Bostrom, drummer for The Meat Puppets. They recorded seven albums in the 80s for the legendary SST label. They released three more albums for London Polygram in the 90s, including “Too High To Die,” for which they received a gold record and scored the hit “Backwater.”

They are most widely known for their appearance on Nirvana’s “MTV Unplugged” television program and subsequent album. It was the financial success of the Nirvana project which finally allowed the Meat Puppets to take a long hiatus, during which Curt moved to Austin, Derrick became an IT professional and Cris pursued a drug habit which landed him up in a federal prison.

Though Bostrom declined to join the Kirkwoods when they reformed in 2006, he has continued to chronicle the band’s history, producing a series of reissues on the Rykodisk label and promoting his own version of events on his Bostwworld site. he is also a deejay at LuxuriaMusic.com, where he hosts a weekly show dedicated to sharing his favorite ephemeral pop trash.

Björgvin Benediktsson is author of the blog Audio-Issues where he writes all about recording, production, and mixing music from your studio. His new book Step By Step Mixing reached #1 on Amazon teaching you how to mix using only five basic plugins choices. Bjorgvin joins us to talk about his new book and his full featured course Mixing with Five Plugins. We are trying something new for Recording Studio Rockstars. We won’t be going through the usual list of interview questions. Instead we reached out to you Rockstars ahead of time, and asked for your questions about mixing. We got lots of great submissions and are excited to dig into all of your great questions.
