Footnotes

  • Lots 267 to 286, 263 and 321 are from the collection of record engineer and producer, Mike Stone (1951-2002).

    His career started as an assistant recording engineer at Abbey Road Studios in the 1960s, working on some sessions for the 'Beatles For Sale' album. He later moved to Trident Studios, where he became a tape operator and assistant engineer, working on albums such as Lou Reed's 'Transformer'. In 1973, he began his relationship with Queen, working with the band's producer, Roy Thomas Baker. Stone engineered six of the band's albums, was a guest vocalist on 'Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy' and was credited as co-producer with Queen on the album 'News Of The World'. He went on to produce top-selling albums for Whitesnake, Asia, Journey and others. Brian May paid tribute to Stone after his death, writing: 'Mike's production style of big chorus building and hitting hard, the ability to treat vocals uniquely, and find space in a recording have influenced a generation of young producers.'
