6. Hit Factory

There are contradictory stories about which studio Lennon was at the night he was killed. Some say it was the Record Plant Studios at 321 W. 44th Street, others say it was at the Hit Factory at 353 W. 48th Street. A 1981 Rolling Stones article, which has an interview with producer Jack Douglas, who was present at the last session, cites the Hit Factory.

Another recording studio connected with Lennon is the Electric Lady Studios, located in Greenwich Village at 52 West 8th Street. The psychedelically designed studio was built for Jimi Hendrix and intended as an artist-owned recording studio to combat the high cost of recording music at the time. Electric Lady is where Lennon recorded the song “Fame” with David Bowie in a stroke of improvisation.
