The Eclectic Mark Hudson: from Aerosmith & Beyond

The Metal Summit is All About Music and The Artist Who Made It and Still Make It

The independent success of Mark Hudson as record producer/songwriter covers a broad variety of artists including Cher, Ringo Starr, Aerosmith, Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, Hanson, Harry Nilsson, among others.


Producer/Songwriter/Musician Mark Hudson whose Grammy Award Winning career includes the hit "Livin' On the Edge" by Aerosmith and co-producer of their album "Just Push Play" is only the beginning of his various other Aerosmith collaborations. Hudson, along with Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Paul Santo, and Marti Frederiksen, make up an informal collective of songwriters, musicians and producers known as the "Boneyard Boys", considered responsible for Aerosmith's creative process.


For over 10-years he was the driving force behind Ringo Starr's continued success as a recording artist whether co-producing or co-writing songs or remixing singles helping to breathe new life into them, he remained a driving force in the life of one member of our lifelong favorite groups, The Beatles.


As a producer he made a new, multi-artist recording of Eric Clapton's 1993 song "Tears in Heaven" as a charity single for victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. The recording also features Elton John, Rod Stewart, Steven Tyler, Ozzy Osbourne, Phil Collins, Ringo Starr, Gavin Rossdale, Paul Santo, Gwen Stefani, Mary J. Blige, Pink, Kelly Osbourne, Katie Melua, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli and members of Velvet Revolver: Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum, Dave Kushner and Scott Weiland. The recording also featured actor Robert Downey Jr. Funds raised from the project, which was initiated by Sharon Osbourne, went to the Save the Children charity.


The list of artists he has worked with, written and/or produced for are a who's who of International Renowned recording artists, and one's who made much of the music we fell in love with then and still listen to today. From working closely with Phil Ramone singing backing vocals on many of Ramone's albums/songs such as "Crazy for You" by Madonna to participating in Rock 'n Roll Fantasy Camps, the storied career of Mark Hudson contines.
