from queens of the stone age, foo fighters, earthlings? posted in music by nevereatshreddedwheat

Rancho de la Luna is a recording studio in Joshua Tree about two hours from LA out in the California desert. Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Arctic Monkeys, earthlings? and Foo Fighters are just a few of the bands that have recorded here over the years.

Fred Drake and David Catching founded the studio in 1993, and David has continued to operate the studio after Fred's death in 2002.

It's been featured in Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, in the Los Angeles episode of Foo Fighter's HBO series Sonic Highways and in a short Vice documentary by Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes.
