Rock History

Muscle Shoals Sound Studios Closes

Another week goes by and yet another historical recording studio closes its’ doors. This week the victim is Muscle Shoals Sound Studios. Yes, the very place where Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan and the Stones all recorded seminal pieces of rock and roll history is closing down because of declining business, another victim of the easy availability of high quality home recording equipment. While I don’t regret having tools like Garageband available, it is still a shame when a place like Muscle Shoals has to shut down. If only those walls could talk.
