SkyTrak Studios - Berlin, Germany

Noise Records flew us in to Berlin to record the album. On the 5th floor in the building was the bedrooms, recreation area, kitchen, laundry room, and offices. On the floor just below was the recording studio.

Noise Records provided two bedrooms for us. Doug and Alan's room was always immaculate.
Rick and I shared this room. I took a picture of it every few weeks.


"Has anybody seen the pool cues? Ah, forget it..."


Two cool chicks hanging out at the studio.


"I just knocked out that 'Dangerous Toy' bass solo in one take..."


The guy on the left was fired because he was an alcoholic.
The guy on the right was fired because he had the personality of a doorknob.


Gerdi (L) and Tom (R) kicked ass!
