We can work it out: National Trust 'open to buying' Abbey Road studios
Speaking on BBC's Newsnight last night, McCartney seemed hopeful the studio would be saved. "There are a few people who have been associated with the studio for a long time who were talking about mounting some bid to save it. I sympathise with them. I hope they can do something, it'd be great. I have got so many memories there with the Beatles," he said.
