NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City recording studio that was a favorite of David Bowie, Lou Reed and Norah Jones will close next month after 28 years.
The Magic Shop’s last day will be March 16.
The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1LDW3qs ) cited a dispute with the landlord. It says founder Steve Rosenthal’s attempt to buy the property — backed by Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters — failed when his bid was rejected by the co-op board.
Rosenthal said he’ll continue his business in audio restoration and archiving.
