Back-up Vocal~For about a year, until program funding ran out, I had worked as an Arts and Crafts Teacher at a retirement home. The details of the comic strip were still being hammered
out at the time. I remember thinking that an abandoned retirement home would be a great
place for Manny and the boys to use as their compound. A place where they could live, write
and record their musicin seclusion.
The 70’s, 80’s and even the 90’s, produced a vast range of incredible albums made in remotelocations, at recording studios with living quarters all in one place. A few band went a step further, taking houses, cabins and even a castle or two and treating some of the rooms as studio spaces. So if bands like Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple, Yes, Marillion andCollective Soul could do it, I decided my boys could, too.
