London's iconic Abbey Road recording studios have been put up for sale by embattled music group EMI. EMI's private equity parent Terra Firma is said to be hoping a sale of the studios - made famous by the eponymous Beatles album and zebra crossing cover shot - could raise tens of millions of pounds.
EMI has reportedly been touting for interested buyers to acquire the studios at number three Abbey Road in St John's Wood.
The group bought the property for £100,000 in 1929, transforming it into world famous studios that have hosted artists as diverse as composer Sir Edward Elgar, who recorded Land Of Hope and Glory with the London Symphony Orchestra there in 1931, to Pink Floyd and Blur.
