|Steve Lillywhite, producer of classic albums by U2, the Rolling Stones, Dave
Matthews Band, Simple Minds, Peter Gabriel and countless others, gave
the Convention’s Keynote Speech, regaling the crowd with war stories of
how Jagger and Richards might’ve nicked some riffs; why Bono always uses
a handheld vocal mic in the studio; and why digital is better than analog in his
opinion. “I’ve made my best records with the worst equipment, and the
worst records with the best equipment,” he said.
