Abbey Road Not For Sale – Says EMI

EMI has moved to allay fears that it was about to sell its famous Abbey Road studio complex (see my post on this last week).

On the contrary, the company says it is seeking partners to revitalise the historic building.

The Guardian newspaper is quoting an EMI press release stating:

“In mid-2009, we did receive an offer to buy Abbey Road for in excess of £30m but this was rejected since we believe that Abbey Road should remain in EMI’s ownership.”

Pretty unequivocal.

If you’d like to see the full statement you can read it at Wog Blog’s site (a site which I really like – thanks Roger).

So, not for sale after all….
