Fans and historic music memorabilia collectors know it’s synonymous with rock and roll greatness, so many were surprised when rumors floated that London’s Abbey Road Studios were up for sale. Home of the Beatles’ iconic 1969 record, Abbey Road is owned by struggling music publishing giant EMI. The building that came to house the recording studio was built in 1830 and was converted to studio space in the early 1930’s. Along with the Beatles, iconic music acts Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder and U2 have also recorded at Abbey Road Studios. Despite soaring debts, EMI proclaimed early Monday that the historic building is not for sale.
