Eminem - Sober Eminem Can't Revisit 'Creepy' Home Studio
Eminem can't go down to the recording studio he built in his Michigan hom e anymore - because it reminds him of a very dark period in his life.
The rapper admits he spent a lot of time down there at the height of th e drug addiction, which kept him out of the spotlight for two years - and couldn't face returning to a place full of bad memories.
Instead he recorded most of his new album Recovery in a new hometown st udio.
He tells Billboard magazine, "I still have the studio at my house, but it reminds me of when I was in a really dark place.
"As soon as all the pills were flushed out of my system and I started s eeing things clearer, going downstairs in my basement and recording creep ed me out a little bit."
