Abbey Road Studios Opens to Public

To plenty of Rock fans, crossing the threshold of Abbey Road Studios rises to the level walking on sacred ground. Some will get the chance to enter the space where hundreds of the greatest songs in Rock history were recorded.  The doors of the fabled London building where the Beatles recorded the vast majority of their catalog and Pink Floyd laid down the songs on Dark Side Of The Moon and several other albums will open to the public for 80th anniversary presentations March 10.  Tickets to the rare events sold out immediately, prompting officials to add two additional presentations the following day.   The authors of Recording The Beatles have prepared a retrospective on the studio, and will be joined by Alan Parsons and other alums of the control room for the studio that also captured seminal work of other UK artists including the Zombies and Hollies and served as the recording site for movie scores including Lord Of The Rings, as well as films in the Harry Potter and Star Wars series.
