The Hard Rock Bears and I got our first look at the studio from the inside after Mickie the Brickie finished the side walls today. It really is an awesome space, and we are all so excited to get a good look up close. The general response was enthusiastic and positive, apart from Angus who complained about the cold!
A big day on the build site today, with walls going up on the slab. We can now see where the doors and windows will be located. As usual the bears were watching as Big Ted got involved. Harley did a spot of climbing own his own too!

The bears sang several choruses of “Another Brick in the wall” from Pink Floyd just to keep things rocking!
It has been a quiet day on the site today, while we wait for the slab to cure. I took the bears to see the space and work out where everything will go.

From left to right, that is Angus our lighting engineer, me, Harley the drummer, ‘Art’ Osborn Bass Guitar, Pierre ‘The Bear’ Artan (Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar) and ‘Fritz’ Barratt our Recording Engineer. The Band were excited to see where they will be able to rock on and record their next video. Angus wanted to know where the beer fridge would be located.
Just inspecting the footings on the site of the new studio, and everything seems to be in order. Garden is a bit of a mess though, so my people have got a lot of work to do when this is all finished. After all, the bears and I have got to have somewhere nice to relax between takes!
Big Ted and the band are very excited, as work is finally underway on their new recording studio. After waiting for so long, they can hardly wait for the builder to finish so that they can lay down their next track.

As you know, Hero the Bear is raising funds for Help For Heroes, particularly supporting the TechyTubbies team from Bristol.
The TechyTubbies were at the Help For Heroes Easter Rally over the weekend, where they camped out in temperatures down to -7C! You can see them in the Video below of H4H 4X4 Rally Easter Meet. The TechyTubbies are in the Land Rover 110 in front of the bright orange Freelander!
