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.

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

I thought that was the area code for that area. (The 3 digit number that goes in front of your phone number for those out of the US.)

It's privately owned, barely resembles what it did when DG owned it, and I don't even think it's marked anymore for this reason.
