This Song: SXSW Extra! Butch Vig

Producer and Garbage drummer Butch Vig is in town for  SXSW to promote the “The Smart Studios Story,” a documentary about the studio he ran with Steve Marker in Madison Wisconsin where Nirvana’s Nevermind, was recorded.  Butch sat down with host Elizabeth McQueen to talk about how seeing the Who perform “My Generation” on the Smothers Brothers made him want to be become a drummer, and showed him the kind of energy he would later help others capture in the studio.  Along the way talks about what it means to be a producer, how Garbage got started and the beauty of Smart Studios.
