After 26 years, Pete Townshend parted ways with his residence in Richmond, London, leaving behind his home studio.
“It was a key,” Townshend wrote on Instagram. “Moving is never fun. He notes that he helped Ronnie Wood – who owned the house before him – build the home studio. Fortunately, Townshend was able to take his Neve BCM10 with him, a console he has used for countless Who recordings.

“I mixed Living in Leeds on it, ”he wrote. “I recorded the piano from ‘Love Reign O’er Me’ on it. I did all the backing tracks for the synthesizer for Quadrophenia, the music of Ken Russell Tommy movie, and “Baba O’Riley”, “Won’t Be Fooled Again”. This console has so much mojo for me. I really like. I rarely managed to get a bad sound out of it.
Townshend has confirmed that he has moved his studio to the English countryside, where he is expected to work on new music soon.
The guitarist recently spoke with Rolling stone about the deluxe edition of Those who sell and its confinement time. “I love being in my studio and I love to work and I hate being on the road away from home,” he said. “And so I was happy for six months. But now, like everyone else, I aspire to be free and to see people. I miss people a lot, even the fans, and even the journalists [laughs]. “
