Do you remember hearing about a fire happening on the Universal Studios backlot in Hollywood back in 2008? Here is a link to the New York Times article for those who need a refresher: http://tinyurl.com/y2jglcnc

“According to a new report from the New York Times, a fire that swept the Universal Studios backlot in Hollywood, Calif., in 2008 resulted in massive damage that wasn’t publically reported, including losses of irreplaceable master tapes from some of country’s biggest names. Universal claimed after the fire in 2008 that the damage was “relatively minor.”  The company reported that a vault of video and television media was destroyed, along with a portion of the studio tour” (Taste of Country, “LORETTA LYNN, MERLE HAGGARD + MORE CLASSIC COUNTRY RECORDINGS DESTROYED IN UNIVERSAL FIRE” http://tinyurl.com/yxqkgj7y)

“According to the original report, Universal initially claimed the damage was “relatively minor,” but internal documents published by the Times dispute that account. “The West Coast Vault perished, in its entirety. Lost in the fire was, undoubtedly, a huge musical heritage,” a memo written in March of 2009 states” (Taste of Country, “REBA MCENTIRE, GEORGE STRAIT REPORTEDLY AMONG 800+ ARTISTS WHO LOST MASTERS IN UNIVERSAL FIRE” http://tinyurl.com/yxg5zepb)

We can only imagine how these artists must feel. We’re sure it was hard enough to hear about the fire in general. But finding out over 10 years later that your masters were part of the casualty must feel like a punch to the stomach!

“The cause of the fire is now believed to have been a blowtorch used by workmen to repair the chapel roof on New England Street around 3am. They reportedly followed policy of standing watch for an hour (to spot any fire after the work) then went for a break. The fire was reported at 4.43am by a security guard. The Universal City Fire crew were on scene four minutes later, by which time a whole block of facades was engulfed” (TheStudioTour.com, “2008 Fire” http://tinyurl.com/y5w2jl64)

What are your thoughts on this whole situation? What would you do if your masters got destroyed? Let us know in the comments below.
