    if you want to know what music Brad plays at the Seminars, you need to go to them yourself. He has gotten into trouble before when fans shared online. Fans who go understand the value of what he shares and know that he can only continue because those who go respect his wishes about not sharing online.

    I do think it would be wrong to record his stuff, but can't people even describe what they hear? That would be interesting, since not everyone can go to these seminars mostly due to geographical reasons.

    When he started first, fans did write online and describe what they hear and thats what got him into trouble. He specifically says this at the start of the seminar, and asks fans if they do write online , not to really describe what they hear. Fans are more than welcome to say how they feel but not what they hear. Its a small sacrifice , to protect these seminars and allow him to continue and go to so many places and give as many fans as possible the chance to go.

    The best recommendation is to read from p1 of this thread, onwards...... Brad also shares many of his stories and pictures on his 'In The Studio with MJ' Facebook page.

    Have you suggested a location in India to Brad?

    Latest from Brad:

    It's cold outside, but it's warm In The Studio...

    Greetings Studio Rats!! I hope 2018 is treating you well so far.

    The past couple weeks we have been editing and fine-tuning the seminar like never before. Today we were working on some of the transitions and I stumbled across a mix that I hadn't heard in years - seriously. I sat and listened to it a couple times, and just for a moment I was back at Record One in the early 90's, listening to it for the first time.

    It's funny sometimes when I look at one of our production calendars from those projects and see just how fast we worked, and how hard we would push Michael towards the end of a project. He was a notorious procrastinator when it came to finishing writing the lyrics, and singing the final vocals. We were always against the absolute deadline that CBS/Sony would give us, with Michael singing almost at the same time Bruce was mixing! Song after song - the pressure was real for everyone.

    I have tried to explain this in my seminars, but you almost can't imagine how exhausting those last few weeks are on one of Michael's projects. There are 168 hours in a week, and I clearly remember turning in my timesheet with more than 110 hours in a week on several occasions. You get so tired that your body is almost numb. You don't know whether to laugh or cry, you just keep going. Even in final days of mixing, when we all looked like death-warmed-over, I don't remember any snippy words or arguing, we knew we were working on something incredible, and adrenaline just sort of took over. How can you be angry when you are getting paid to work on songs like "Give In To Me", "Will You Be There" and "In The Closet"? Song after song, hour after hour, lead vocal after lead vocal. If Michael can do it, so can I.

    I was talking with Matt Forger last night and we once again said how the guys in those productions are still friends - 20+ years later. We all have our own lives, some in the industry, some not, but we were part of something remarkable - and we don't take that for granted.

    Michael would have been 60 this year.

    There are no more lead vocals to record.
    No late nights wondering how he is still able to stand.
    No more raiding the fridge for a 2am bowl of Katherine and Laura's Banana Puddin'.
    The songs are mixed, the microphones are put away, the studio is dark.

    It's days like this when I find a mix and listen to it - intently - it's like a hug from an old friend.

    I can't bring you back to the Hit Factory in New York in 1994, but I show you what it was like.

    I can't bring you back to Record One in Sherman Oaks in 1990, but I can take you deep into many of those songs.

    I can't bring you back to Westlake in Hollywood in 1986, but I can give you glimpse of what life in the studio was like.

    Music is funny sometimes. It picks you up and takes you somewhere in time, in your memory, in your imagination.

    I hear a few notes and I can taste banana puddin'.
    I hear Michael's voice and I am momentarily back in a warm studio, like a kid in a candy store, watching guys like Steve Porcaro or Brad Buxer create - music.
    I hear the jokes in my head, I see Bruce add just a pinch of EQ that most people could never detect, yet the song gets ever stronger.
    It's all right there - in my mind - waiting for a musical trigger to release those beautiful memories.

    I was listening to Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" album (vinyl) earlier today on an amazing pair of speakers with one of my daughters. I was explaining to her that this album was incredibly popular when I was growing up, and it was one of many that pulled into the recording industry. As we were talking the acoustic guitar strings of Gold Dust Woman started to play. I stopped talking and just listened. The mixing of that record - the soundscape - is so rich it reaches outside of the speakers and wraps around you.

    Well did she make you cry
    Make you break down
    Shatter your illusions of love
    And is it over now
    Do you know how
    Pick up the pieces and go home

    One week from now I'll presenting "In The Studio With MJ 2018". I'm excited and nervous - but mostly excited.

    I want my events to reflect - in some small way - the pursuit of perfection and creativity that Michael strove for.

    He was an artist, but also a great guy.
    I miss him, but if I can give you a glimpse into the Studio, into his humor and talent - I've done my job.

    I hope you will consider joining me in Orlando next weekend, followed by Nashville and host of other amazing cities.

    It's cold outside, but it's warm In The Studio.

    Latest from Brad:

    Your Attention Please...
    Your Attention Please...

    Orlando - what a great weekend!! KDS Studios was a great venue, the sound was on-point, and our guests were fantastic! It's nice when everything comes together.

    KDS has a pretty cool history in Orlando as it was home to the "Boy Bands" like N'Sync and Backstreet Boys. I am told that Eminem also spent a lot of time at KDS. (Now do you get the intro?)

    I previewed several new segments for the 2018 shows, and the response was very positive. As always, I am grateful to you studio rats for hanging out with me, digging into these songs and stories.

    Now - I have some very exciting news for our Nashville event: We have secured Southern Grounds Studio - owned by Zak Brown! This is a legit facility with a rich history in music, and I so excited to bring my seminar, Tour of Neverland and The Remix to their beautiful facility!

    Just after that we hop across the pond for a weekend in London at Fiction Studios. It's going to be a very busy February.

    I have added an entire segment on the song "You Are Not Alone". I can't say too much, but even as I was building this I was blown away by how much work and transformation that song went through. I previewed with my Orlando guests this weekend and I think they really liked it.

    One of the things that always strikes me when I present my seminar is how willing Michael was to take chances, to push the limits and try new things. As we are now celebrating what would have been his 60th birthday year, I want to give my guests a blend of the stories they know and appreciate along with some new ideas - digging a bit deeper into Michael's catalog. I think you will be pleased with the result.

    Have a great week, and I hope to see you In The Studio in 2018!
