WCA #307 with Kevin Churko – Family Band, Family Business, Mutt Lange, Ozzy Osbourne, Phil Collins Drums, and Graceful Exits

My guest today is Kevin Churko. Who’s originally from Canada, currently resides in the United States, and he is a producer-engineer, mixer, and songwriter. He’s worked with Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Papa Roach, Modern Science, Five Finger Death Punch, Shania Twain, and Hellyeah amongst many, many others. One aspect of his career that’s fascinating that we’re going to talk about is that Kevin worked for four years for Mutt Lange in Switzerland. He moved the whole family there. We’re going to talk all about that in his journey, which I think you’ll find quite fascinating. And I’m very excited to have Kevin join us today.
