The response from the world of music and showbiz has been swift and vocal in response to the news that the studios face demolition if sold to property developers. The studios are an integral part of rock'n'roll history and have been used over the years by the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Oasis amongst countless others.
A source close to Lord Lloyd-Webber said: "Andrew knows that any offer will have to be north of £30million. He wants to buy Abbey Road because it is very dear to his heart. When he records there, he uses an orchestra with up to 90 musicians, and there aren't many places you can do that."
Elsewhere, Dame Fiona Reynolds, director general of the National Trust, has said that the charity would be interested in buying the studios and that offers of financial help had come through from interested parties in both Japan and America.
However, with the high price tag attached to the studios, she urged artists who have previously used the studios to step forward and help.
She told the Daily Mail: "Maybe they can help us because they are the kind of people who have huge affection for this place."
