MICHIGAN HISTORY: What #1 Song Came From This Michigan House?
What was the #1 song that was recorded in this Michigan home?
According to Mysterians guitarist Robert Balderrama, "the answer is 96 Tears.....this is the house where it was recorded, I am the original guitarist who helped write the song and played my guitar in it. 96 Tears was recorded in Bay City, Michigan, on Raymond Street in 1966."
It's said to be one of the first Garage Band hits and was given credit for starting Punk Rock. Question Mark still stands by his claim that he never takes his sunglasses off, even while sleeping or bathing.
And, according to the Michigan Rock & Roll Legends website, "405 Raymond Street in Bay City, Michigan...it's hard to imagine that it was once the home of the Schiell Recording Studio or that a hit record was made there.....Art Schiell's studio represented an important first step to completing a seemingly improbable quest for the young musicians who recorded it there."
