Sound Matters

Back on January 24, 2008, I did a post about hearing the song “I Wanna Be Sedated” by The Ramones at the supermarket and how it gave me such a pleasant JOLT while food shopping. Well guess what (and this is soooo exciting), the multi-platinum and Grammy winning producer/engineer/mixer who lovingly crafted that instantly recognizable “I Wanna Be Sedated” Ramones sound, ED STASIUM (that's Ed, pictured above) is working with me and my hubby Bill's band, The Villas, on our new and upcoming 3rd CD, “Fun Park USA!”

Ed Stasium's first Gold Record was for “Midnight Train To Georgia,” by Gladys Knight and The (“woo woo”) Pips!

Along the way, Ed Stasium has worked with The Smithereens, Mick Jagger, Joan Jett, Carly Simon, Talking Heads, Marshall Crenshaw, Soul Asylum, Living Colour, Freddy Mercury, Motor Head, The Ramones, Nils Lofgren, Clarence Clemmons, Martha Reeves, Reverend Horton Heat, The Plasmatics, and our mutual pal and great NYC recording artist Richard X.
