Keith's 1st Studio Experience

Keith's 1st Studio Experience

This was the first studio that Keith Richards set foot in

Location: 35 Portland Place, W1B

Description: The IBC Recording Studios (IBC: International Broadcasting Company) were once located here.

After the Second World War it was the address of the leading independent studio in London and the British Isles. In the 1960/70s the studios become internationally famous after being used by some of the biggest recording artists in the world.

In the late 1970s, Chas Chandler bought the studios and renamed them Portland Recording Studios. The address was also home to George Peckham's cutting rooms (Porky Prime Cuts) and Radiotracks Studios, a company specialising in recording and producing radio commercials. It was later bought by Don Arden and was run by his son David Arden.

And it was also the first studio that Keith Richards ever set foot in! It was through a friend Glynn Johns who happened to be an engineer there and wangled Keith and the Stones some time.
