Canadian producer Jack Richardson (the Guess Who, Alice Cooper, Bob Seger) passed away at London, Ontario’s University Hospital. He received 38 Gold and Platinum awards during his career, and is a former Fanshawe College instructor. His son, Garth Richardson—who works under the GGGarth moniker—has produced albums for Korn and Rage Against the Machine, among many others.

“Jack Richardson was not only a creative innovator, but he also brought a new level of technical expertise to a burgeoning industry, and through teaching and mentoring for over half a century, raised the level of quality of all Canadian music production and programming,” producer and work partner Bob Ezrin said in a statement.

In 2002, the Canadian music industry renamed the Producer of the Year Juno Award to the Jack Richardson Producer of the Year Award. He was also a recipient of the Order of Canada. Donations in his memory can be made to the Jack Richardson Music Awards.
