During his long career as a sound engineer and producer Jack Douglas has worked with some of rock’s most elite musicians – Alice Cooper, Miles Davis, The Who and Cheap Trick. He produced Aerosmith’s blockbuster ’70s albums and is again collaborating with the rock legends on their forthcoming record.

A few months ago, I, your intrepid reporter, camera in hand, delivered a tour of AC/DC-related locations in my adopted hometown of Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne is a beautiful city – it reminds many Americans of the best bits of San Francisco or Portland – and it’s utterly swelling with Oz rock history. It was a really fun article to write, and to reflect on a very, very famous band and its physical connection to a location that I find myself surrounded by every day.

Comments
We have had a major renaissance in fuzz pedals in the past decade or so. New and old makers and alike have brought out dead-on renditions of mid-’60s germanium fuzzes, late-’60s silicone fuzzes, modern fuzzes with knobs to control every parameter of the circuit, and more.
