    EMI, whose artists include Coldplay, Lily Allen and Robbie Williams,
    So that's why they're cash strapped.

    I'm seriously considering sending EMI a joke email offering $21 for Abbey Road Studios, but making it sound like a really serious offer, and even including a picture of the money.

    Do it. I dare you.

    If you like, I'll put $21 worth of British Pounds towards yours cause and we can share it :)
    What a way to strengthen the Anglo-American relationship!

    In all seriousness, I'd like to see Paul, Ringo, Yoko and Olivia put together and buy it out. That'd be nice.

    Yeah, lets all have a whip-round! Perhaps if I send them a drawing of a spider which I value at £50,000,000 :D

    This would be awesome, I'm sure it'd only be pocket money prices to them and be a great way to keep things intact, instead of some greedy git buying it and putting flats there.

    Wouldn't that be cool?

    It's probably not feasible, but wouldn't it be great if it could be preserved and turned into a museum with tours? I would be on the first plane to London.

    How about this - Beatles karaoke in the studio? For a small fee, you pick the song of your choice, and they record it through the vintage equipment. The employee turnover rate would probably be unnaturally high - the staffers would go tone deaf after a few weeks on the job - but wouldn't that be cool?

    In all seriousness, I hope whoever makes the purchase respects and honors the facility. I would hate to see it turn into an insurance company headquarters or a law office. :eek:

    I was in London last week. We stayed at a hotel not too far from the studio. Maybe a mile and a half. Planned to visit the place but had other priorities. Figured it'd still be there next time we come to London. Now I'm having regrets...

    On the positive side, we decided to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum instead. And were pleasantly surprised to see the London Beatles Store right next door!
