Busy Izzy and Friends Visit Abbey Road

Busy Izzy and Friends Visit Abbey Road

It was a very exciting day when Stephen Kiely and I, along with, Busy Izzy and Friends, visited Abbey Road in London. September 2018. There were many excited "Beatles" fans lined up to walk across that 'famous' crossing.

History 

Innovating Music Since 1931. Abbey Road Studios is the most famous recording studio in the world and a global music icon. Originally a nine-bedroom house built in 1829, it was purchased by the Gramophone Company in 1928 who went on to build the world's first purpose-built recording studio.

The Beatles released their album entitled,  'Abbey Road' on the 26th of September 1969.  It was recorded between 22nd February and the 20th of August 1969.

Its popularity is probably due in part to the album's success. The album debuted straight to number one in 1969, and is considered one of the greatest albums ever made by the Beatles. The recording studio EMI changed its name to Abbey Road, possibly as a direct result of its popularity.

When a plan was floated to take a cover photo in the foothills of the Himalayas to illustrate the title, the band went off the idea and instead went with the easiest plan possible - have the picture taken outside the studio and call it Abbey Road!

So, there you go, Roxanne Kiely and Stephen Kiely and Busy Izzy and Friends visited Abbey Road.  "Busy Izzy and Friends visit Abbey Road in London"
