News that EMI was looking to sell the famous ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS has caused an uproar in The U.K., and now THE ASSOCIATED PRESS reports "The National Trust could buy and preserve the ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS where THE BEATLES recorded many of their classics after an outpouring of public concern over its possible demolition."
"It's not often that the public spontaneously suggests that we should acquire a famous building," Trust spokesperson JOHN HEWITT said. "However, ABBEY ROAD recording studios appear to be very dear to the nation's heart."
The AP says the campaign to save ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS was headed by former BEATLE PAUL MCCARTNEY, who has a house near the studios.
