    What are it's specs? Anybody know how big it is? How many rooms it has, features, etc?

    The only little glimpses we get are on the tube in their "interview area", playing video games, and a few photos of a rehearsal room.....

    Anyone? Anyone?

    There is an issue of The Inside Magazine that has many great photos of the pre-renovated 5150...it looks pretty messy!

    I have a 5150 video from around the time of Right Here, Right Now. The actual recording area looked really small, but the added drum room was a decent size. I'd say the whole recording area and outside area with the recording boards is all about the size of a an average school classroom. Plus their little lounge area is pretty big too...

    Very cool. Thanks for the input...I figured if you have bits & pieces, you can get a general idea of the setup....

    I read it's the size of about 2 raquetball courts.

    Hey now! There may be a few drumsticks (read KFC) on the floor, some pizza boxes (read 47) and many pairs of panties laying around, but I wouldn't put the cleaning estimate any higher than 7 or 8 hours!
