my session at Abbey Road (with gear porn photos)

For my 40th birthday last week, a good friend of mine booked a day for me at Abbey Road in studio 2. I kept a diary so I wouldn't forget all the details. Sorry it's so long. I was so excited about recording at Abbey Road, I can?t even begin to tell you. I really expected someone to put the kibosh on...

Nah, you're OK, man. you're 26, it is your job to passionately denounce things. If 26 year olds don't do that, who will? As you get to be a really old man like me, you'll start to forget why you hate things and just be happy for any old scrap of melody anybody throws your way. Now, let's talk about ...

Well, you know, Paul was doing tape loops before Nigel was born. I get what you're saying, but I think a lot of people see it as a positive thing that working with Nigel would prompt Paul to think a little more adventurously. For all it's ups and downs, Paul's post- Beatle career has suffered the mo...

Well, I've got studio 2 booked for April 2 so I suppose I'll find out what's available and report back. I'm so excited to actually record there. I borrowed a friend's copy of THE BOOK (thanks, Rog) and I've been reading it feverishly. I only have one day (all I could afford and not really at that), ...

Holly's band is really good, too. They are called the Shebeats, she has sort of a Chrissie Hynde thing going on. They're really working hard, playing all over the UK.

Tell us more! Like, honest to God, I really don't know if they own a guitar amp or a drum set. It's the only studio in the world that doesn't list that sort of stuff on their website. They don't even list those tape machines you mentioned. For the most famous studio in the world, with a whole book a...

Please do not make me regale you with stories of the time I played in Swindon and A) got a letter from Colin Moulding wishing us luck with our show and B) had Andy Partridge's very cute daughter show up knowing all the words to our songs and then she called her dad so we could all say hello. It may ...

Oh I have checked out the Abbey Road website many, many times and they are notably lacking in the "list of gear" department. As far as I can tell, thy don't own a guitar amp for bands to use or anything.

What I wonder is if Abbey Road has their old machines like that available for people who record there now. I'm sure Macca can have anything he wants brought out of storage, but i wonder about the average band working there.

These are killer amps. You can get some fantastic tone out of them.

For the guitar, i can't quite remember which large diaphragm condenser was about 10 inches in front right at the end of the neck, but that was tracked live with the drums about 8 feet away. I also took one of the drummer's sticks away so he couldn't do any fills (he snuck a couple in any way). 2 mic...

vocal overdubs in Rhode Island?

Anybody know a good small studio in Rhode Island. I just need a place to do some vocal overdubs in PT 6.4 and the singer lives in Pawtucket.
