U2 To Buy London Studio?

Irish rockers U2 are reportedly set to buy the legendary London studio where they recorded the final sessions for their new album NO LINE ON THE HORIZON. The band began recording the new LP in February (08), working out of their own studio in Dublin, Ireland, with stints in both the south of France and New York.
The band wrapped up the album by spending several weeks in London's Olympic Studios, which was recently put on the market by record label EMI.
The building is part of rock history with artists including Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones all recording hits there.
And now U2 are said to be preparing to put an offer in for the studio, to give them a base while they are in the U.K. and to save the venue from developers.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "They knuckled down and really responded well to the places atmosphere. They already have their own studios in Dublin but feel that Olympic could be a very wise investment.
Theyre totting up some figures at the moment. If the maths works out theres every chance theyll put an offer in.
