Recording ARK "Burn The Sun" in Celle, Germany 2000

John Macaluso - Ark Recording 2000

This is one of the only photos taken from that session. Here I am recording the first half of the song "Missing You". Producer, Tommy Newton put a bunch of candles around the kit and knocked out lights to get the vibe.........I think it worked! I wanted to get a Phil Collins feel on first half of tune, so I used very thin 7A sticks, then went back to my 2B's for the finish. 2B or not to be, I love the record, one of my babies. J. Mac.
