  • Another studio closes - this time, it's the house that Creedence built...

    That's right - the building that houses legendary bay-area recording facility Fantasy Studios has been sold, and the studios will be closing as of September 15.

    Sad. :-( CCR was the first rock band I liked, and I jumped from there straight into Led Zeppelin.

        And a lot of them have private studios that they set up in their own homes.

        The home recording revolution is the #1 reason for the decline in commercial studios.

          Well...It is what it is....Progress can be a bitch sometimes. As the Automobile became more popular, more blacksmiths whose business was heavily reliant on horseshoes went under as well. I'm sure there were poignant, nostalgic moments in towns remembering the blacksmith and livery shops that were once prevalent. As well as the same for the small towns that died when the Interstates passed them by.

          20 years from now, the 20 somethings of that day will not even know what a recording studio even was.

            That makes me feel really sad for them.

              Hopefully in time, Live Nations, Pay Per Play and Corporate ran Radio Stations will die out like Mtv .... so live music can be reborn again with out nepotism, politics and Corporate suits ( Record Companies ) killing music itself.
              I guess studios will be a thing of the past too.
              How many guitarists does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Five , one to screw it in , hit the switch and four to sit around bragging how much better they could have done it !!!! 😱👹😲
