I doubt Guy or John Illsley get "mates rates" at all, why would they? as I have said, it is a commercial business, like other artists, they would have to book time direct with the studio, not just ask Mark. Yes, he owns it, but I doubt he gets involved with the day to day issues, that is why he employs someone to do it. Guy has his own studio too, so he wouldn't need to book much time in BG for his own purpose anyway.

I agree, it's either "free of charge" or full price. I remember reading that Mark helped people, who he hadn't gifted with his signature Strats, to buy it with a discount from Fender, so he cares about this stuff.

I doubt Guy could afford to use BG at full commercial rates.

I read an interview with Nick Lowe where he said BG is the best studio but too expensive for him to use. Nick Lowe has had hit singles and albums, has a loyal following and can comfortably sell out theatres. But BG is too expensive for him.

Razorlight, Travis,Chris de Burgh, Take that, The Last Shadow Puppets, Ronan Keating, Duffy, Mystery Jets, Noah and the Whale, Vicente Amigo, Iggy Azalea, ASH, Jonathan Antoine, Jamie Cullum and The 1975 between many others could afforded to record at BG...

Maybe Nick Lowe has a very low budget...

Ha.

Yes, there's no doubt Nick's appeal is "more selective" these days (and he's never been massive), but his records will still sell many multiples of GF. No way GF pays full rates IMO.

It's from a BBC documentary about Alan Hull (Lindisfarne) that is being shot these days.

FRom here: https://www.bbc.com/mediacentre/2021/england-commissioning/

Fog on the Tyne: The Alan Hull Story (w/t)

Daisybeck Studios

The story of the singer and songwriter from Geordie super-group Lindisfarne. Alan Hull was dubbed ‘the Geordie Dylan’ for his ability to compose a wide range of classic tracks in the 1970s. His songs included Lady Eleanor, Fog On The Tyne, Winter Song, Clear White Light and Run For Home.

Hull wrote about love and friendship, but also championed the underdog and the misunderstood, and celebrated working class culture in his hometown.

In this film, Brit award-winner Sam Fender explores the archives and discovers the real Alan Hull. We also hear contributions from Sting, The Unthanks, Elvis Costello, Kay Greyson and Mark Knopfler.

Looking at this pic, it sadly doesn't look like MK will be up for much touring to promote the next album....

How should he be up to promote an album that hasn't been finished yet?  :think

Mark's old man posture doesn't look extremely healthy here or maybe it was just an extremely awkward split-second to take a picture. Who takes pictures while somebody is going to sit anyway? Most importantly, what the guy on the left was doing? Looks like he held Mark's nose before the shot. A terrible picture indeed.
