Default Southern Rock Fans, fun studio news

Capricorn Studios, Macon, GA, the complex where many of the Capricorn acts recorded, has been purchased out of foreclosure, stabilized, and is now being brought back to life by Mercer University. They will preserve the historic studio and control room, will add another, larger wings, and will add rehearsal halls and a museum to the facility.




After seeing it lie derelict for so many years it is nice to see someone not only preserve but restore and reopen this historical complex. Opening date is set for December of 2019.

That's great to hear. I can picture Paul Hornsby laying down one of his memorable piano tracks right now.
