R.I.P. Mike Shipley

"I'm devastated to hear of the passing of Mike Shipley. He was a fantastic engineer & a good guy. Nothing got past him if it wasn't up to scratch, hence Leppard's nick name for him, bat ears.  From the High & Dry album in 1981 to the last thing we did together, 1993's "Two Steps Behind" he was a joy to work with. RIP Shippers" - Joe Elliott

Very sad news! What a legacy though! Hysteria, Adrenalized and many other credits to his cap!
