Reinhold Mack (a.k.a. Mack) is a German record producer and sound engineer, mostly known for his collaborations with rock bands Electric Light Orchestra and Queen. [1] Most of this work took place at Giorgio Moroder's Musicland Studios in Munich, which became famous after Marc Bolan & T.Rex (with producer Tony Visconti) first discovered it for recordings in 1973. [2] In 1981 the Queen album The Game brought Mack and the band a Grammy Award nomination for Producer of the Year (Non-Classical). [3]


Mack's third son, John Frederick Mack, was named by Freddie Mercury and was a godson of both Mercury and Queen bass guitarist John Deacon.[ citation needed ] [4]

Mack is referenced in the lyrics of the Queen song "Dragon Attack" on their 1980 album The Game , which he produced with the band: "gonna use my stack/it's gotta be Mack". [5]
