Tony Visconti once lived Here



Tony Visconti once lived Here

He had a home 16 track studio where he mixed 'Bowie' & 'Sparks'

Location: Melrose Terrace, Hammersmith, W6

Description: Anthony Edward Visconti (born April 24, 1944) - also known as 'Tony Visconti' is an American record producer and sometimes a musician or singer.

Since the late 1960s, he has worked with an array of performers; his lengthiest involvement with any artist is with David Bowie: intermittently from Bowie's 1969 album Space Oddity to 2003's Reality, Visconti has produced and occasionally performed on many of Bowie's albums.

And so to this street.

Tony once lived here in Melrose Terrace, Hammersmith, with his then wife Mary Hopkin and their young son Morgan.

Mary was in her final trimester of a pregnancy which would produce their daughter, Jessica.

Tony was mellowing out in my three-storied terraced house containing a 16 track home studio, years ahead of its time in concept.

Like so many professionals who have project studios today, he felt he could make better records in the more relaxed atmosphere of his own home. This is the same studio where he mixed 'Diamond Dogs' and 'Young Americans' for Bowie, and also recorded and mixed Indiscreet by Sparks.

But can you help us with the number on the street?
