Default Studio 606 in Alexandria

Our family bought the house in Alexandria that used to be the old Studio 606 where a few albums were recorded. Does anyone have any photos of the FF's at the house/studio?

post pictures of your house if it is indeed the same one.


EDIT: also on this one, at around 2:40, Dave shows some of the rooms of his house that are pictured on the TINLTL booklet.

If you have really bought it you'll need a new door to the basement. Dave has it.

The house looks like a regular house in a upper middle class neighborhood, but I think it is West Springfeild.


nevermind, I deleted it myself, Sometimes I need to wear a muzzle...on my fingers...So I don't type anything that would piss someone off.

This post has been totally edited and ribbed for comfort and enhanced pleasure...

I live in Alexandria now... the 7 Eleven in the picture (Where K&H Cleaners was) is on Quaker Lane still, but it appears to have been updated quite a bit and the cleaners is now a Chinese take-out restaurant.

I still go there sometimes to get a Slurpee, but no Foo Fighters walking across the street anymore :-/

Cool! I ve been hitting that 7 eleven for years, never had a Band sighting though. Man, that neighborhood had some serious storm damage a few months ago, ever street had trees down and crews we're everywhere, trying to restore the electricity. Thats is not far from my house only a few 7 11 s away! LoL. I guess I posted the childhood home, I don't know, it could still be in the family and I feel bad so I will erase part of my original post.

I think Dave has claimed it is his lycky number.
Since I'm not allowed to place links I cut this from an interview by musicOMH.
"It's a dumb, lucky number I've had since I was a little kid," explains the Foo Fighters frontman of the number 606.

I also remember an interview where he made some crack about it not being Satan's number (666), but just down the street. lol

So, I started this thread and then got busy and have not come back to this til now. I never posted any pics, but it's our house. The basement is now a big kids playroom. My wife still forwards Dave's mail to his agent every month. Anyway, we're remodeling the front and old kitchen now and would love to track down any old photos of the band at the house if anyone has them. I remember seeing one of the band standing in front.

wow. Dave still receives mail at the house? I remember that we still get mail addressed to the former owners from time to time.

Maybe it from the fact that $606.17 was how much Nirvana was billed for 30 hours of recording for their 'Bleach' album.

So yeah, no. I doubt Dave was even aware how much that session cost.
yeah, that's what I thought.

It does go on to prove his point that 606 shows up everywhere, though.
