Talks about Brian and others. At the end of the video she goes to the old United Western Recorders site asking to get in to show the TV station where she recorded. They didn't know who she was and Carol left upset. It was kinda sad to watch.

Yeah... That was very uncomfortable to watch. I feel bad for her, to have to go through that.

I loved watching her and Brian play GV though!

Perhaps an indication that it's a good idea to call ahead rather than bursting into a still-fully-operating recording studio with a camera crew in tow.

I just watched this with the sound off and with closed captioning, and even then it was super awkward. Not sure how much the staff "didn't know who she was" versus just wasn't able or willing to let he just film whatever she wanted with that crew.

But unless the goal of this endeavor was to come across as bitter, out of touch, and disgruntled, this was a pretty big fail.

Contrast this to that UK "Abbey Road Studios" documentary from the late 90s or early 2000s, where they brought Pete Best back to Abbey Road for the first time in eons. They got permission ahead of time to have him and a film crew there, and what they got was surprisingly sad, sobering, yet poignant footage of Best taking himself back to that first EMI session, which was also among his final days with the band.

Actually quite a good parting comment about ‘cutting something that probably won’t make any money’.

Agreed. A bit of forward planning probably would have got her in.

 can't really blame them for not letting her in. Walking in with a camera crew when she clearly isn't the biggest name in the business is a bit awkward on her part. She seems like a nasty bitter woman

I'm not sure much of anybody, even an obviously well-known celebrity/musician, would have been allowed to wander around the studio (or gain access to the studio in any way) with a film crew without prior permission.

I'd also venture to guess if the studio was in use, whomever was currently using the studio would need to grant permission to anyone else to be there, let alone shoot video.

The whole thing just comes across as an unnecessary, with Kaye and the crew seeming to come in as if they were an investigative team confronting someone.

I dunno, while I'm firmly of the mind that much of modern pop music is repetitive and not of note, the "they're cutting something that probably won't make any money" thing just makes her look more bitter. Not to mention, it's someone who is ostensibly an "artist" placing the most emphasis on how much money a recording makes rather than how good it is. Also, it's pretty presumptuous about whomever might be working in that studio. Maybe a great recording is being made in there.

I wish they would have made reference to 'The Wrecking Crew' and we could have seen her really go off the the rails, lol.
