dude!! I remember my jazz band going into the studio in HS - 1986. Our rhythm section was made up of 3 of the 4 guys in my rock band back then: me on bass, my friend Jer on drums, and my friend Andy on guitar. We had recorded at the studio before so we knew the engineer and the set up. It was a blast and also a bi**h b/c our director knew NOTHING about being in the studio, but wanted to be in charge. We did so many unnecessary takes b/c he would not let the engineer do his job...

on the cool side, we actually got to mix the album, do overdub solo's and help with set up and tear down. We were definitely "studio rats" back then
Those were the days when you could spend a day fn off in studio playing the same song 20 times and then go out until about 2 am

That’s really cool. I was just a dummer and didn’t know anything about the studio equipment. I just loved to play. The two sax players were cool black guys who kept trying to get me and the other drummer to play something besides 2 & 4 downbeats haha. I think I eventually figured out that jazz wasn’t ACDC.

man, I would do my tracks, then hang around while everyone else did theirs; then go into mixing...we would sleep in one of the empty studios and get up the next day and go. We were hardcore...

I went to The Recording Workshop in Massieville Ohio back in 93...and my band had been a guinea pig band there since the mid 80's...it was sort of my home away from home back in the day.

There were many times my junior and senior year of high school that we would go down on a weeknight...leave school right at 3; do the hour drive down to the studio, and record from 5pm-6am, and then drive back and change clothes in the school parking lot and do another day of school on no sleep...freaking awesome!! By senior year, we would skip that next day of school
