Abbey Road Studios, the legendary heart of The Beatles' music catalogue, is commemorating its 90th anniversary.
LONDON -- Abbey Road Studios, the legendary heart of The Beatles' music catalogue , commemorated its 90th anniversary this month.
A number of other famous artists -- from Pink Floyd to Adele -- have also made use of the recording studio. But it is The Beatles and their chart-topping 1969 album -- named after the London street where the studio is located -- with which the venue is most closely associated.
"I remember being pretty nervous on most occasions in the recording studio, but also very excited -- a nervous excitement. It was fantastic to be at Abbey Road," Paul McCartney said, according to The Beatles' 2000 autobiography, "The Beatles Anthology."
"We lived there," he added. "I loved it so much that I even had a house around the corner. I never wanted to leave."
