Serious discussion about the band known as QUEEN.

Musicland Studios Munich 2017

I went to the Q+AL gig in Munich last night, and it was my first time ever in Munich. Obviously a true special thing for me as a die-hard fan to see some special Queen and Freddie places (like the club where he celebrated his 39th birthday and recorded the video for LOMO, or the streets of his flats where he lived, etc.)
Luckily I even was allowed to walk through the doors of Musicland Studios, and definitely felt the spirit of the band there. Amazing to be right in front of that huge hotel and to think about the things that happened in the basement of that odd building, all the amazing songs that were written and recorded down there. Due to some nice and special people that I know, the old studio door was opened just for me (and my brother) and we could walk down those famous stairs that we all know from the "One Vision" video. As you can see below it still looks like that today, apart from the missing gold records on the walls (nails were still in the walls.)
Sadly, the main studio rooms aren't actually accessible anymore, mainly because they basically don't really exist like that anymore. The main entrance door on the right is still there when you walk down the stairs, but there is only little room left in there (as they say), and that room is actually now used as a storeroom for the Sheraton Hotel. I really had high hopes that I could walk through the old control room and stuff, but that wasn't possible anymore.
It was a very special feeling to be there, anyway. The studio toilets are very uncomfortable, by the way. :shock:
I made these photos and a little video (I couldn't help myself doing that) :D . Hope you guys enjoy. :)

Yeah, thanks for posting that.

Seeing these places then, and now, IS amazing.

I always get these feelings of the magic created in places like this, Metropolis, Trident, Mountain in Montreux, and Abbey Road, they really ARE shrines to the art created within those walls.
