Q 2145 Have you seen the Tubes? Oh yeah. You like The Tubes? Oh yeah. We were … my band, we were rehearsing over at SIR and the Tubes were in there rehearsing. Their rehearsal scene is like more stringent than a Broadway play. They rehearse like a bar at a time, their moves, they have like a 7 o’clock dancer call, 8:30 is the band call, … they’re very serious on the level of what amounts to stagecraft, and I can dig that – it’s just like a musical or a play. The fact that they can do it with some wit, and enjoy it, that’s tremendous. There’s an awful lot of discipline involved in what they do. I would never be able to handle that.

What would have been the studio he refers to as SIR? I am sure I should know it, but I am blanking on it.
