The Nirvana Connection: Sound City Studios in Van Nuys

"Convicted mass murderer Charles Manson, who at one point had rock aspirations, recorded demos there (at Sound City Studios) a year before Tom (Skeeter) became involved with the operation."

Located at 15456 Cabritos Road in Van Nuys, Sound City is also where Nirvana recorded their grunge masterpiece "Nevermind." The very last album to be recorded there was by the band Everclear. Tom Skeeter and crew is giving up after 40 years in business; the full article can be viewed here:

Thanks so much Ken. I love little known Manson trivia facts. I also LOVE Everclear. Nirvana rocked back in the day.

You're welcome Liz, I worked real hard finding this nugget of info. I knew everybody would want to see it! lol

Nice find Patty!

This place is on my list for my "Valley" trip. Nirvana SUCKS! The only grunge band I could ever really get into was Alice in Chains.
