1982 January: Paris (FR) Studios Davout
Possibly the most intense experience I ever had in a studio. An atmosphere of madness surrounded the sessions. One day, she threw a vintage Neuman 47 flying into the control room window because I was smoking a cigarette ("I don't like my engineers to smoke" she explained, lighting a marlboro). Another day she fired her gun at someone that annoyed her - turned out to be blanks, thankfully. A very talented but unfortunately torn artist.
