Memories of Air Studios

Hi there, I watched a programme on ITV with Sir Trevor McDonald regarding the Caribbean. In one of the programmes it featured a visit to Air Studios in Montserrat which is now derelict because of the volcano eruption some years ago. I wondered what the Band remembered about their time on Montserrat in 1983 and their recording sessions there. Sue
