In 2008, a terrible fire ripped through a warehouse on a Universal Studios property where thousands and thousands of master recordings, that were supposedly in a VAULT, went up in fired…destroyed forever. How?!! We’re talking rare master tapes from Bob Seger, Tom Petty, Elton John, and many other Classic Hits artists. But it gets worse…included in the rubble were recordings from Bing Crosby, Chuck Berry, Ray Charles and a long list of other iconic musicians. Why on earth were these not in a vault that would protect the contents from a fire or ANYTHING?!!
