Morin-Heights’ legendary recording studio goes up in flames
The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) is investigating what is being described as a suspicious fire in Morin-Heights Friday morning.
The fire broke out at around 5:30 a.m. in an abandoned building on Perry Street, which once housed a recording studio.
In its heyday, Le Studio welcomed the likes of Cat Stevens, The Police and Rush.
SQ spokesperson Daniel Thibodeau said most of the building was destroyed.
The cause of the blaze has yet to be determined.
The building has been abandoned since 2008.
A GofundMe campaign was even created in 2016, to help save the studio and create a museum to preserve a slice of music history.
