Abbey Road Studios celebrates 80 years of recording
Abbey Road Studios, the recording studio made famous by bands such as The Beatles and Pink Floyd, has celebrated its 80th birthday just a day after it was sold to a French-owned rival.

On November 12 1931, Abbey Road Studios officially opened its doors with Sir Edward Elgar conducting the London Symphony Orchestra playing Land of Hope and Glory.Despite hosting a number of landmark recordings from artists such as Fred Astaire and Glenn Miller, it was not until The Beatles named their 11th studio album after the recording studio that it began to find worldwide fame.
