Macca hopes Abbey Road Studios survive sell-off.

Byline: ANI

London, Feb 17 (ANI): Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney says he hopes to see the famous Abbey Road Studios survive a sell-off by EMI.

Bosses at EMI, who own the studios, decided to sell the property to pay down some of the mammoth debts it was saddled with after Terra Firma's highly-leveraged 2007 takeover.

However, Sir Paul, who recorded most of the Beatles' songs at Abbey Road, has expressed his concern over the sale adding that a consortium is desperately trying to come up with the cash to save it.

"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," the Daily Express quoted Sir Paul as saying.

"I have got so many memories there with the Beatles. It still is a great studio. So it would be lovely if somebody could get a thing together to save it," he added. (ANI)
