In 1963, brothers Kingsley and Charles Ward turned their family farm in Wales into a recording studio that would change music forever. Boasting sessions with rock legends like Queen and Black Sabbath, Rockfield became the destination for bands looking to record a hit for the next five decades. Kingsley joins John Landecker to share stories from the farm and the new documentary about the studio.
