Funk/rock heroes Red Hot Chili Peppers wrote 35 songs for their next Warner Bros. album and then hit a private studio in Laurel Canyon (L.A.) to record them with producer Rick Rubin and engineer Mark Linett. The group played live with everyone in the same room, and recording was to Studer A800 24-track on Quantegy GP9. Linett says, “Finding enough tape was particularly challenging, but we managed to round up about 100 reels!”
