Ongoing History of New Music

Ongoing History Daily: The Foo Fighters and 606 Studios

One of the biggest expenses any artist has to endure is studio time. Creativity can’t be rushed, so you don’t want to record new music when you’re up against the clock and a budget.

The Foo Fighters have been lucky enough to have made enough money so they have their very own multi-million-dollar studio facility where they can record whenever and for as long as they want. They call the place 606 Studios, which was built in the early 2000s out of an old warehouse in the San Fernando Valley.

It’s in a nondescript residential area in Northridge and features all kinds of state-of-the-art gear, a vintage recording console, offices, rehearsal space, and tons of Foo Fighters memorabilia. It’s about the best clubhouse any band could ever hope to have.

Friday’s post was on the non-legendary Tragically Hip.
