Andrew Lloyd Webber Plans to Save Abbey Road Studios
Since news broke that EMI Group placed the iconic Abbey Road Studios up for sale, many prominent figures in the entertainment industry are stepping forward in a plea to save the studios - including composer Andrew Lloyd Webber who has vowed to save the studios at any cost, reports the Daily Mail.
A source close to Lloyd Webber said, "He wants to buy Abbey Road because it is very dear to his heart. When he records there, he uses an orchestra with up to 90 musicians, and there aren't many places you can do that."
A spokesman for Lloyd Webber is also quoted in the Daily Mail, "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 UK. Abbey Road has such great facilities, with three major recording studios."
