Abbey Road: Recording studio to The Beatles. Led Zeppelin. Pink Floyd. But unless you’re a famous recording artist, or famously intent on breaking them up (coo coo ca-choo, Yoko), getting inside has always been impossible.
Because Abbey Road Studios has just opened its doors for private tours and recording sessions, and they’re taking limited reservations for next month right now.
Abbey Road is the birthplace of iconic albums — The Beatles’ Abbey Road was recorded there, of course, not to mention Pink Floyd’s Atom Heart Mother, Roadiohead’s OK Computer, and Wang Chung’s Points on a Curve (hey, they can’t all be winners).
It was only open to the public once in ’83, and once this year to celebrate their 80th anniversary.
Now, you get an inside look, and an invitation to record a cover of any of the studio’s most famous songs with the help of the studio’s engineers, who will also mix and master your “inspired” cover of “Revolution.”
Because what’s rock ‘n’ roll without a hotel room to trash, the tours booked through The Savoy, which will provide a few perks, e.g., cocktail tastings with the hotel’s world-class mixologists and a music-themed English brunch.
Another secret: Ringo’s a massive fan of their blood pudding. Just massive.
