Chycki was given the nod for the single 'Far Cry', from RUSH's latest album, Snakes & Arrows. Churko receives the nominee for the song 'I Don't Wanna Stop', from OZZY OSBOURNE's current album Black Rain.
Richrd Chycki boasts a discography that also includes Mick Jagger, AEROSMITH, Kid Rock and DREAM THEATER vocalist James LaBrie to name only a few. BW&BK; spoke to Chycki about the recording of Snakes & Arrows. “I recorded and mixed, Nick Raskulinecz produced it,” Chycki says of his latest Rush experience. “We both had a common goal to make a modern yet more vintage sounding Rush CD so it was a very complementary relationship. Nick’s an accomplished engineer in his own right having worked with the Foo Fighters, so I very much respect the trust he put in me. Regardless of which band I’m working with, I never feel like my gig is just a job. I’m not the weekend nightshift boy at 7-11 so I’m very grateful. But I will say that in between all the listening and meter watching, once in a while you look up and see Geddy riffing out and the thought crosses your mind – ‘Holy Fuck! I’m recording Rush!’”
