Former location of the White Room studio – a building no doubt awaiting conversion into high priced lofts. My friend Mike lived here back in the 1990’s and we’d hang out in his 6000 square foot loft after work. The famous White Room studio was located one floor below Mike’s place.
What was recorded here ?
Let’s start with: Aretha Franklin, Electric Six, D12, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Seger, Tori Amos, and the Detroit Cobra’s.
Anybody ever hear of a guy called Kid Rock ?
He recorded Devil Without A Cause right here at White Room.
* “Welcome 2 the Party (Ode 2 the Old School)”
* “I Am the Bullgod”
* “Only God Knows Why”
* “Wasting Time”
We’d see Kid now and then in the elevator or outside – and Mike has the best story of seeing Kid on the elevator with a potted tree.
Mike: “Hey Bob, where you goin’ with the tree?”
Kid: “Up on the roof, give it some air”
Later Mike saw him out front on Griswold sitting in a convertible…with the tree. Hahahaha !
