TORONTO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A freak accident involving two empty Gray Line busses in Toronto has caused millions in damage at one of North America’s largest studios.
One of the busses slammed into the front of Cherry Beach Sound studio on January 27th after being hit by the other bus, taking out a support beam and raising fears that the building may collapse. Those fears were put to rest when the bus was eventually removed and the structure was deemed sound.
The studio is part of the Munition Factory, a multi-faceted production facility built in 1911. Cherry Beach owner Carman Guerrieri bought the building in 1982 to bring in musicians from around the world to record. It has been used by The Tragically Hip, AC/DC, Garth Brooks, 50 Cent and Canadian Idol stars.
“Life is crazy,” Guerrieri told Toronto news stations. “I’m just a small-business owner trying to compete. We’re talking a lot of money here, millions and millions, I can’t work now.”
Guerrieri described the studio as top notch.
“(It has) the best possible equipment anywhere in the world that has to do with audio recording for music, for TV, for radio, for film,” he said, according to the Toronto Star.
“All the best bands you can think of. Bon Jovi was by last week.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
