I dunno? Why does it matter? I'd assume it's an asset of the band as an LLC or something

Who actually owns studio 606?

Nate,Taylor,Chris and Dave.
Dave explained it in a Docu behind the scenes kinda thing!

Studio 606 is owned by the band!

Dave came up with the name i guess
Studio 606 was also his basement studio

what i wonder is what does 606 stand for?
housenumber maybe??
Dave's first pay check with the other band?
the amount of albums he want's to make?

From what I understand the studio is owned by Foo Fighters LLC which Dave is the president of. The "606" was from an old apt or house door where he used to live. The door had the numbers "606" on them and he took the door to his Va. house and installed it when he built the studio there. Correct me if I'm wrong...

Ah, so my guess that it was built by the pharaohs might be a little off...

the number actually came from nowhere, I saw on an interview (can't remember which) Dave saying that there's something about this number that he just likes, it's been on his head since forever and when he was coming up with a name for the studio, it just popped again and he did it. I saw this fairly recently, if I remember or stumble upon this interview again I'll post it here.

obviously.
since Dave doesn't live in virginia anymore, no one other than the current owners of that house are the ones using it for whatever reason.
one of them is apparently a member of this board.

My family bought the house in Virginia. I learned on this board that Studio 606 was on the door to the basement. It's true that the door was missing from the hinges when we bought the place. The basement also had cameras hardwired in and a room that connected a tv to about 17 cameras around the property, which we just turned off since we don't use them. Dave, of course, was not at the closing. The house was held in the name "Simon Ritchie Trust" or something like that. Anyway, we're remodeling now, so I'd like to collect old pics of the house if anyone has any.

A bit off topic, but still... I'm not so sure that 606 came just out of nowhere. $606.17 was how much Nirvana was billed for 30 hours of recording for their 'Bleach' album.

you can't affirm with conviction something you don't know. until we see the documents (likely never), it's up in the air for lots of guesses.

I'd say it's Dave's with a little help of the band, but I think he's likely to own it.

from what I know, they all are suppose to own it. I remember reading that they all pitched in.

dave also says "we" when he refers to writing the music for the band so....who knows?

That could be, but even so Dave didn't drum on the Bleach album. He joined when Nirvana recorded Nevermind.

A corporation or LLC. Do you really think Dave is dumb enough to own an asset like that personally, let alone split it equally with band members?

It is not exclusively for Foo related productions.

I thought Bleach came out before Dave joined?

I've always thought about the fact that Dave is a huge Beatles fan-
and one of their first songs, which they finally recorded and put on Let It Be is called "One after 909",

so though I have no proof- I just feel that there looks like some natural connection between 606 and 909 no?
(I mean it's a stretch but Dave does know Sir Paul McCartney)

cheerios :>
