The Mud Man

Sad to say it but The Bomb Shelter in Takoma has closed.  RIP!

After over 4 years as my personal private studio, I've closed The Bomb Shelter doors and decided to move the whole deal to Wisconsin. Just like in 1989, it's time to get out and get some air.

I'm gonna have to check the antifreeze in all my gear, and get a block heater for the Mesa Boogie just in case she won't fire up in the morning.

Well I'm looking forward to building a new room with a new vibe and setting it all up in combination with my buddy's studio rig to continue rocking into
2005 and beyond.

Well Wisconsin didn't work out. I lasted 6 months (not to mention spending a lot of dough) and got to experience minus 24 degree temperatures in my underwear on the porch. Pretty damn cold. 

In the summer of 2005, I moved the studio to sunny Florida and built a new room on the cheap.
