Fleetwood Mac on New Songs & Tour, Dave Grohl, and Justin Bieber

Fleetwood Mac stopped by our famous Moroccan Ballroom to interview with Fuse TV and chat about their upcoming tour, new songs, and their best/worst tour memories. In 1979 Fleetwood recorded their album “Tusk” in our studio D. Tusk went on to be the most expensive rock album made — up to that point, costing over one million dollars to record (a fact widely noted in the 1979 press).

Watch the Interview in full below and be sure to visit our official Youtube channel for more behind the scenes clips.

Where Would We Be Without Rod Stewart?

England has given the U.S a lot of wonderful things, but where would we be without Rod Stewart? He has dominated the charts since the 1960’s and is known for being one of the best selling artists of all time. He was even inducted into the exclusive club of Commander of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or CBE for short, along with fellow musicians Trevor Horn and Elton John. Stewart, Nathaniel Kunkel and producer David Foster were in Studio F this month working towards perfecting a 5.1 mix of his upcoming Christmas album. Look for it at the end of the month!


If You’re Having A Bad Day, Try A Little George Benson…

If you’re having a bad day and you think you’ll never make it in the music industry, listen to George Benson’s version of, “On Broadway” and I bet you’ll feel re-inspired.  Since the 1960’s, a then 21-year-old Benson was already working as a jazz musician for the likes of Jack McDuff, and even topped Billboard music charts with his album “Breezin” in 1976. “Little Georgie” (as he was then called) has gone on to win ten Grammys, play countless tours and festivals all over the world and will be releasing a new album very soon. We were honored to have him in Studio D with famed engineer Al Schmitt (who actually worked on “Breezin” with Benson, along with countless greats like Steely Dan, Ray Charles, Quincy Jones etc.) and assistants Shin Miyazawa and Chris Owens.

“Thomas Newman has
been composing some of the most memorable scores of the decade.”

When you have film scores like ‘Scent of A Woman’, ‘The Shawshank
Redemption’, ‘American Beauty’ and ‘The Green Mile’ listed as your credits, you
know you’re doing something right. Since the mid eighties, Thomas Newman has
been composing some of the most memorable scores of the decade. He landed his
first big gig when he was only 29 years old writing the music for ‘Reckless’ starring
Aidan Quinn and Daryl Hannah, and since then, Newman’s signature sound has
proved to be in high demand. His dedication and high-quality work have resulted in
91 compositions to date, and earned him a BAFTA award, an Emmy, five Grammys
and eleven Academy Award nominations. This month, Thomas was busy in Studios
D and F with assistant Shin Miyazawa creating his next masterpiece for the film ‘Side
Effects’ to be released on February 8th. Also, stay tuned for the Oscars on February
24th where hopefully, we will watch Thomas accept the award for Best Original
Score for ‘Skyfall’!

The Gleeks Record @The Village

Bursting onto the scene in 2009, “Glee” has changed the way America watches television. The show’s unique brand of humor combined with the allure of today’s biggest pop hits being belted out from McKinley High’s music room, Glee is hard to resist. Because of the large amount of musical production that goes into each episode, The Village was lucky enough to host a few Gleeks this past month for some recording and mixing. Composer James Levine was at the helm with Ghian Wright.
