It's well documented that EMI Group Ltd is currently suffering through gripping money woes as the company tries to reset its recorded music business. Now, it seems that one classic component of EMI is on the trading block - Abbey Road Studios. The Westminster studio was known as EMI Studios when The Beatles began recording there in 1962, and would continue to innovate right through to 1969's Abbey Road.
Among the artists that have recorded at Abbey Road Studios: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Cliff Richard, The Pretty Things, Radiohead, Kate Bush, Oasis, and Elliott Smith, plus dozens of other groups.
