Anybody wanna buy a piece of music history?

EMI to sell iconic Abbey Road studios (from CNN.com)

"The Beatles put the studios on the map, using it for 90 percent of their recordings between 1962 and 1969 and naming their final album Abbey Road. EMI used the studios for last year's release of remastered Beatles albums."

"'What you have is a very, very expensive piece of heritage. If an artist goes to a label and asks to record at Abbey Road they will be met with maniacal laughter,' the media lawyer said....Abbey Road is still prized as one of the few venues able to accommodate entire orchestras, which has allowed producers to record scores there for films such as
Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone."

Any takers? No? Bueller?

There's another article here from USA Today that contains the best line ever:
"Potential buyers beware: The famous black-and-white crossing is not included in the deal."
