On October 24 at the Soundedit’15 festival in Poland Roger Glover will receive The Man with a Golden Ear award for his work as a producer. On this occasion the festival published an interview with the man:

Why at some point in your career did you decide to take music production? You wanted to have a bigger impact on the sound bands with which you worked?

I didn’t decide to become a record producer, it just happened, almost without me noticing. In 1972, I’d first tried my hand at it with my friend Rupert Hine’s Pick Up A Bone album. Then Nazareth, with whom we’d been touring, asked me to produce them, I don’t know why. I had no idea about how other producers worked but just went with my instincts. In 1973 I was back on the road with DP when I was forced to leave the band, I arrived back home is a sorry state, very depressed. Two days later, I picked up the music papers and saw that Nazareth were number four in the Top Twenty with Broken Down Angel. My spirits lifted. I found myself with a new career.

Read the interview on the festival’s website.
