Creative musts for Gavin Rossdale, Toni Braxton, and more

Mood, mutts, and movies — inspiration comes in many forms while making an album. Here are some creative musts:

· Bush’s Gavin Rossdale: ”My dog.” · Toni Braxton: ”I have to have the studio hot enough to bake bread.” · Garbage’s Butch Vig: ”There’s always a film running, like Blade Runner or Blue Velvet.” · Heavy D: ”For hip-hop, I like a lot of people there. If people start moving toward the studio, you know you’ve got a good record.”
