Abbey Road Up For Sale

The world famous Abbey Road Studios, where most notably the bulk of The Beatles' albums were recorded (including its namesake, right) as well as Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon; Radiohead's The Bends and OK Computer; and the final albums by both Elliott Smith (Figure 8) and Oasis (Dig Out Your Soul), respectively, has been put up for sale by the cash-strapped EMI label--owner of the legendary facilities--in an attempt to avoid defaulting on a major loan.

Here's a suggestion to someone who might be able to help:

Sir Paul, instead of just bitching about it and remaining on the sidelines like you did when you let Michael Jackson buy your catalog and subsequently place "Revolution" in a Nike ad, buy the damn thing! 16 million dollars for a place that holds a big chunk of your legacy is not that bad a deal, right?
