In 1969, Bob Dylan asked Johns to help him make a record with The Beatles and The Stones. Members of those bands expressed varying degrees of interest, but Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger were dead-set against it, and the ultimate super-group collaboration never happened. Johns, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, is still working, recording the likes of Ryan Adams and Band of Horses. Surprisingly enough, he owes some of his good health to Keith Moon, the hell-raising drummer for The Who, who once agreed to quit drinking if Johns kicked his 60-a-day cigarette habit.
