New York City Day 2
so here i am back at the electric lady recording studio sitting in the lounge area while some keyboard tracks are being laid down. i found out that pontiac spent $20,000 on 2 days in the studio with mark plati. that cost more than our entire record! there will be over 2 million people watching from the streets below. i'm pretty nervous. i'll be the guy who looks like A.C. Slater playing along to a pre recorded track.
day 2 was a pretty grueling day in the studio. the entire time we were playing there were cameras and lights in our faces. so many distractions...it was very frustrating and difficult to muster up any sort of vibe or emotion while recording. we decided to kick the camera crew out and after that the recordings went swimmingly. after that we visited the pontiac stage where we will be performing and my nerves shot through the roof just thinking about 2 million plus eyes and ears on us....not to mention the tv audience.
we left the stage and headed over to an amazing steak house called gallagers and stuffed my face full of rare filet mignon and waddled back to the hotel. when we got back to the hotel we all watched tv on the pullout couch until we fell asleep, thus ending day 2.
