Oscar-winning director, actor and musician Billy Bob Thorton, was recently interviewed in EQ Magazine (March 2003) about his studio The Cave. The Cave has a fully loaded rack of Avalon gear (2x Vt-737sp, 1x AD2022, 1x AD2044, 2x AD2055) shown above.
In the interview Billy Bob talks about recording his vocals, "... I usually sing into a Neumann M149 and Jim (Mitchell) runs that through an Avalon 737, which works well because it has a little warmth and air around it, and that compliments what I'm doing..."
Artists that have recorded with Billy Bob at The Cave include: Slash, Warren Zevon, Dwight Yoakam, Billy Gibbons, Robbie Robertson, Daniel Lanois, Styx, Jewel, Marty Stuart, Ricky Medlocke and many others.
