Virtual Earth map of Air Studios, Montserrat - Sir George Martin

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


In 1977, Sir George fell in love with Montserrat and decided to build the ultimate get-away-from-it-all recording studio there. Opened in 1979, AIR Studios Montserrat offered all of the technical facilities of its London predecessor, but with the advantages of an exotic location.

For more than a decade, AIR Montserrat played host to classic recording sessions by a who's who of rock, including Dire Straits, The Police, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Ultravox, The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, Black Sabbath and Eric Clapton.

Then, in 1989, disaster struck when Montserrat was dealt a devastating blow by Hurricane Hugo which destroyed 90% of the island's structures and brought the studio's glittering story to an abrupt end.
