Here is a good studio story....
When I was about 20 years old, we went to London to shop our demo tape to Polygram.
It was a fun trip but we got shut down very quick and very fast. (no regrets).
Toddling through London, we saw a sign out front "Recording Studio" - I forgot the name.
I rang the bell, a guy let us in, huge board, classic English sound studio.
The music notes were on a stand in the middle of the room,
It was Meat Loaf.
I guess we caught him when he was out to lunch.
It was very exciting at the time.
