Tuning the Key of the Universe: Jack Nitzsche Remembered

David Dalton, Gadfly, 2001

Jack Nitzsche, who died last August at the age of 63, was a seminal but shadowy figure in rock ’n’ roll since the early '60s. Here, Andrew Loog Oldham (among many other things), manager/producer of the Rolling Stones during their classic era (1963-1967), takes time out from editing the second volume of his memoirs, 2Stoned, with David Dalton to remember Jack Nitzsche.
