Jimmy Iovine Career Beginnings

Early in the 1970s, on Easter morning, Jimmy received a call from engineer Ray Cicala requesting him to come to the studio to assist an artist. When Jimmy hurried to Record Plant Studios, he discovered that it wasn’t just any musician playing—it was John Lennon. In the engineering booth, Jimmy intervened when he noticed that Lennon was having trouble with the song “Stay in the Chair.” Jimmy worked on two more of Lennon’s solo albums after impressing the ex-Beatle.
