After Jimi Hendrix saw how much it cost to rent studio time for Electric Ladyland, he and his manager Michael Jeffrery decided to turn the Generation Club they had recently invested in into a studio. After several construction upgrades and expenses, Electric Lady Studios had their opening party on August 26, 1970.

Although Jimi Hendrix only recorded there for four weeks before he died, numerous landmark albums have been recorded there since: Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy (1973) and Physical Graffiti (1975), The Clash’s Combat Rock (1982), Weezer's first two albums, Run-DMC's Tougher than Leather (1988) and the White Stripes’ De Stijl (2000) are just some of the more noteworthy creations.
