Remembering Le Studio

“What Le Studio meant to us, is really hard to put into only a few sentences. It was not only a place where we did some of our best work, but we also experienced many profound personal moments there. To say nothing of the friendships that were forged there that still endure today. Le Studio played a key role in our album recording experience at a pivotal point in our career. We were already saddened to learn of its derelict state a few years ago, but upon hearing that it has now been destroyed by fire, it truly marks the end an age for the 3 of us,” remarked Geddy Lee

RIP Chris Cornell

This is shocking and terribly sad news…. Chris Cornell was not only an amazing musician but also a generous spirit that will be sorely missed. Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, solo work. What a voice. What a body of work. Our thoughts are with his family, bandmates, friends and fans…. Truly heartbreaking. RIP Chris
