this is a recording studio in sausalito california ,
i did in ‘79 , when i was 25 .
the first photo is the entrance to the studio ,
this is where i meet john lennon on opening night .
then van morrison came and joined the conversation .
i finally got this picture , but as it was 11×14 i had to
take it to a photo copy place and have them make a cd disk
from it , but the format was wrong it wont allow me to edit it .
after2 days waiting for them to do something , i just put it on the floor and took a picture of the picture !
the rest of the pics. are other places in the studio,
that i don’t have many pics. of .
i am very proud of the floor , as it was a real challenge to do ,
i wanted to do it in hardwoods , but the owner wanted to make
it like an old western worn floor .
so it got made of redwood ( groan ) and doug fir !
my thoughts were tree of life and mountains and sky behind .
hope you like it .

john said to me ,” were both trying to turn the world on ” !
and van said ” i’m building a recording studio in my house ” ,
and i said , ” yes i know , i made the window , between the studio and the control room ” .
he then said , ” that’s the best thing in the studio ” !

Beautiful work, David!! Far out stuff!! I have vinyl in the archives that was recorded there. If I remember right, Led Zep and many others did work there as well…
Forgive me, but I’m a little envious of not only your woodworking skills, but also your experiences and memories!! You should write a book!! “Patron’s Long and Winding Road” or “David’s Long, Strange Trip”!! :-)
Thanks, as always, for sharing your work, thoughts, and life with all of us. You’re a Good Man, my Friend!! Be Well!! Michael C.
