Mike Squires hat eine Ebay-Auktion für Aufnahmen im Foo Fighters-Studio 606 in Los Angeles gestartet, um seine krebskranken Mutter Charlotte zu unterstützen. Außer den Foo Fighters haben bereits Bands wie Nirvana, The Black Crowes und Queens Of The Stone Age in dem renommierten Studio aufgenommen.
Der Originaltext der Auktionsanzeige für Aufnahmen in Foo Fighters-Studio 606:
“Studio 606 is the Foo Fighters‘ private studio. 606 Studio Manager, Scott Parker, and the Foo Fighters have donated 2 days of studio time to help benefit my mother Charlotte’s fight against cancer. The highest bidder in this auction will have unlimited access, for two days, to record or mix at the studio. The auction includes the use of the house engineer, the studio space, studio recording equipment, Pro Tools rig, and limited backline (no house guitars are available for use, Sorry!). That literally means that you can show up with your band’s guitars and pedals and your favorite snare or kick pedal (but, seriously?) and create a record in a world-class recording environment. If you are well rehearsed that is enough time to record or mix a couple of songs to perfection. Maybe you want to track a full album and take it somewhere else to mix? BUT, tons of classic albums were recorded quickly by well prepared and inspired bands. Black Sabbath’s first was recorded in one day and mixed the next. Nick Drake’s Pink Moon was recorded in two days. So was Velvet Underground’s White Light/White Heat. Are you up for that challenge? Bring it.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Booking the use of the studio will be contingent on the studio’s existing schedule. Certain limitations will apply because of that. The winner of the auction will schedule time with studio manager Scott Parker. One Day equals ten hours of studio time. Transportation to and from the studio is not included in this auction. Room and board also is not included in this auction.
