A Day in the Life of Abbey Road

On BBC news today, EMI and its private equity firm Terra Firma, owners of  Abbey Road Studios has put the famous landmark up for sale.  The Beatles recorded their albums there.  Sir Paul McCartney has spoken out, hoping to foster support for a movement to keep Abbey Road a recording studio.

If sold, like many other places of iconic-pop history, the studio could be turned into anything.  A travesty of rock-history…

The cross-walk on the street in front still looks the same as the famous album cover and tourist/fans continue to visit the site and risk the life threatening traffic to re-enact the eternal image of the Beatles (one of my favorites too–and to be quite honest, if I ever get there, I’d have to try to get a pic too!!)

Check out the video here from the BBC article.

  1. I hope it gets into the hands of someone artistic who will honor it’s history. Maybe Paul McCartney should buy it. =) Nice post Jenn, glad you’re back.
