Yesterday was filled with multiple adventures. Visiting Abbey Road Studios was another highlight we got to see that day!
Abbey Road is the location where the Beetles shot their 1969 album ‘Abbey Road’. This iconic album cover pictures them walking through the street. To this day this is still a very influential piece of work, because people from all over were in the street taking pictures and trying to recreate this famous cover on the corner of Abbey Road and Grove End Road.
Once you have finished crossing the street a million times, you can walk to the front of the Abbey Road Studio gate. Sadly, the studio was not open to the public *insert sad face* so we could not go inside, but the gate was very interesting.
On the gate, people from all over signed their names, confessed their love for the Beetles, and made sure they left their mark on this landmark.
For those who do not know Abbey Road Studios is were a lot of big names have recorded including: The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Florence & the Machine, Kanye West, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Elton John, and many more. So, you can see a nice range of both older and newer names in this list, but all brilliant in their art.
Inside this building there are five recording studios (each unique in their own ways) and thirteen award winning recording and mixing engineers. They also pride themselves on having some of the best technology in the music industry from speakers to microphones.
