The studio where Def Leppard recorded part of their classic 1987
album Hysteria has now been demolished. The original site of Windmill Lane Studios in the Docklands area of Dublin, Ireland was demolished over the weekend.
U2 famously recorded many of their albums at the studio including their most popular – 1987’s The Joshua Tree plus earlier albums ‘Boy’ and ‘War’. According to local news reports the outside walls which have been spray painted by die hard U2 fans over the years will be saved. The band used Studio II for recording work on ‘Hysteria’ in 1985 to 1987. As explained in the quotes below this building that was connected to the main studio closed down some time ago.
