    Well, they practiced in Dave's parents basement didn't they? I get the feeling this isn't what you're after.

    It was refered to as "Ground Zero", but like Glenn, I think your after something else. Does Dave's house have a famous name or something? Out.

    No, once they started doing better gigs they moved out of Dave's basement.
    One hint. The building is in Pasadena.

    Is it Marshall Junior High School? This is really a shot in the dark guess.

    I picked that because that's where Rudy Leiren used to listen to Ed and his various band incarnations. Figured it was wrong, but tried anyway.

    Was it Francis Ford Coppola's soundstage or something along those lines?

    Steven B, VH used Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope studios to rehearse for the Diver Down tour.

    Glen. Sorry, I wasn't trying to be a smartass when I laughed about Marshall high school. I honestly thought you were making a pun on the word marshall(amps). I never heard of marshall high school, shows you what kind of idiot I am. I know where they did their regular rehearsals cause I know the promoter who ran the place they rehearsed in. I picked up a number of personal items that belonged to them that they left behind. She said they were nice guys but slobs, leaving junk all over the place. I thought it might be in a book or fact sheet somewhere. Any ideas yet?

    Glenn-You're right, I can't figure out what Tribb is after here. I was pretty sure they always rehearsed in Dave's basement. There was the old story of Ed and Al jamming on the main riff for And The Cradle Will Rock for two weeks straight until they finally came up with the other parts. Seems to me that Ed said that happened in DLR's basement.

    No offense taken tribb, I was just taking a shot, even though I was sure it wasn't right. Thought it could have been a possibility since Ed and Rudy Leiren began a longstanding partnership there. I'm racking my brain, but I'm coming up empty.
