Co-Founder of a Groundbreaking Studio Has Died

Written by Chief Editor.

In March, 1968, Norman Sheffield opened a recording facility in London’s Soho with his brother Barry. For the next 15 years, Trident Studios was at the epicentre of the music industry, attracting artists like Elton, David Bowie, Joe Cocker and Genesis.

They were drawn to the studio because of its relaxed vibe. Trident also offered them the ability to be creative while surrounded by the latest technology and superior producers and engineers.

Last year, Norman released his memoir, Life on Two Legs, which looked back at Trident as well as on his days managing Queen.

Sadly, he died on June 20, after a battle with cancer.

The 74-year-old is survived by his wife, Chris, four children and seven grandchildren.
