Greetings folks. Just a note to say that a couple of pirates took control of the John Kilgore Sound & Recording page last night, and posted some spam. They're gone. For the moment.


Apparently, there are rumors on the street that the studio is closing. It's not.

It seems this got started when I had to clean out my storage space and sold off or gave away a few items that I no longer needed. Somehow that got blown up into this rumor.

There's an old saying, "telephone, telegraph, tell a stagehand." News that travels this way isn't always accurate.

We're still here.

The multireedist Mr. Landrus is in stark relief with the no-nonsense rhythm team of Lonnie Plaxico on bass and Billy Hart on drums.
