Official opening of the Will Cross Room at Stage 2 Studios, Bath

On the evening of Friday 8th June, the family of the late Will Cross, members of his bands: Stolen Souls, 5 Second Rule and Trenchard; parents, and a small group of friends, gathered at Stage 2 Studios, Brassmill Lane, Bath, to celebrate the official opening of a newly refurbished studio dedicated to the memory of Will: the Will Cross Room.

The owner of Stage 2 Studios, Dan Flitcroft, thought of the idea as a tribute to Will and as a way of keeping his name alive, as he and his fellow band members had spent many enjoyable hours rehearsing and recording some of their material at the studios.  The particular studio named after Will is the same one in which 5 Second Rule were televised playing on BBC Points West, following their "five minutes of fame", after their song ‘Drives me round the bend’ was played three times on the Chris Evans show on BBC Radio 2.
