A. Linn

A. Linn

Real Name:
Linn 9000
Profile:
Many Stock, Aitken & Waterman Hit Factory productions credited the famous Stock and Aitken with keyboards, programming, guitars and suchlike. Curiously they almost always credited the same unknown drummer - the mysterious "A. Linn".

The credit was an in-joke and an anti-muso tease, the name being a reference to the Linn 9000 the studio used to create their relentless pop beats.

The Linn 9000 was Linn Electronics' last instrument. Introduced in 1984, it was a combination of sequencer and drum machine. When Linn Electronics went out of business in early 1986, Roger Linn went to work for Akai, furthering his design ideas in such products as the MPC60 sampling and sequencing drum system and the ASQ10 sequencer.
