The Musicians' Olympus

This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Keith Olsen (producer)

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY:

Fantastic producer, Keith Olsen was born Keith Alan Olsen on May 12th, 1945 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA.

He has produced many great acts, such as Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Whitesnake, Santana, Pat Benatar, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and many others, as we can see in the partial discography I´ve assembled below.

Apart from producing, he also played bass in a few bands. His first musical job was backing blues artist Jimmy Rodgers.


GALE GARNETT BAND


Keith Olsen joined Gale Garnett Trio, staying with her for 2 years:

AND THEN...


After The Millennium, Keith Olsen concentrated on producing albums, also working as engineer in some of them. As far as I know, his first production was for the band Eternity´s Children (along with Curt Boettcher).

Keith Olsen sadly passed away on March 9th, 2020 in Genoa, Nevada. He was 74. We can still enjoy all this great work. Rest in peace.
