TEDDY RILEY interview in Blues & Soul!

December 14, 2010

Hot off the press!

Blues & Soul have come up trumps with this brilliant interview with the don, Teddy Riley, talking extensively about his production duties on the just-released Michael Jackson album Michael.

On the difficulties of trying to produce a record that would reach Michael’s high standards, Teddy says:

“It was very difficult because the Michael that we know would always say “go back” so when you hear go back do it over you would like hold your head in your hands. Even when you think you have finished he would be like “that needs to be touched” or “it is not great”. So I was making five versions out of one song to find a track that was “great”.”

It’s a moving and fascinating read.
