Producer/mixer Dave Way and Jamie Way (former Larrabee East studio manager), along with investors Diana Richardson, Tony Richardson and Brent Spiner, have purchased Larrabee East and renamed it The Pass (L.A.). (See “L.A. Grapevine,” May 2005 for more information.) Although the studio “officially” opened in April, recent renovations to the mix room and lounges pushed the grand opening party to September 16. Since taking over the studio, The Pass has hosted such artists as the Rolling Stones, India. Arie, Rosanne Cash, Switchfoot, Wolfmother and Van Hunt, as well as producer/engineers Bill Bottrell, Dave Sardy, Matt Wallace, Dave Bianco, Mark Trombino, Nick Launay, Pat McCarthy and Rob Schnapf.
