Rock Producer Rick Parashar Dies at Age 50

Rick Parashar

The music community is mourning the loss of acclaimed producer Rick Parashar who is well-known for producing Pearl Jam‘s most successful album, ‘Ten.’ Parashar lived in Queen Anne, a neighborhood in Seattle, and founded London Bridge Studio in 1985 with his brother Raj. Throughout his career, Parashar lent his talents to the production of several records by bands like Temple of the Dog, Alice in Chains, Dinosaur Jr. and Blind Melon. He died from natural causes in his home in Queen Anne.

In addition to producing the album, Parashar also contributed musically to ‘Ten,’ playing the organ, piano and percussion. Fans can hear his contributions on tracks like ‘Black’ and ‘Jeremy.’

According to Northwest Music Scene, he helped develop many local artists in the Seattle area including Alice in Chains, Brandi Carlile and My Goodness. London Bridge Studio became a go-to studio for many acts during the grunge explosion of the ’90s.

Diffuser offers our sympathies and condolences to Parashar’s friends and family during this hard time.
