Lloyd Webber Wants To Save Abbey Road

SIR ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER is planning to step in to save the doomed recording studio famously used by the BEATLES.
The Abbey Road studios in North West London, which have hosted music legends including Michael Jackson and Pink Floyd, became synonymous with the Fab Four after they named their 1969 album after the building.
The property was put up for sale this week (beg15Feb10) by bosses at music label EMI, sparking fears over the future of the facility.
Sir Paul MCCartney revealed a consortium has been set up in a bid to save Abbey Road from closure, and now Lloyd Webber has confirmed he's considering stepping in to help raise the estimated $20 million (£12.5 million) needed to buy the studio.
A spokesman for the theatre mogul tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "Andrew first recorded there in 1967 with Tim Rice and has since recorded most of his musicals there, from Jesus Christ Superstar to his new musical Love Never Dies.
"He thinks it is vital that the studios are saved for the future of the music industry in the U.K. Abbey Road has such great facilities, with three major recording studios."
