Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

With a foreword by Paul McCartney

Many people will recognise the famous zebra crossing. Some visitors may have graffitied their name on its hallowed outer walls. Others might even have managed to penetrate the iron gates. But what draws in these thousands of fans here, year after year? What is it that really happens behind the doors of the most celebrated recording studio in the world?

It may have begun life as an affluent suburban house, but it soon became a creative hub renowned around the world as a place where great music, ground-breaking sounds and unforgettable tunes were forged—nothing less than a witness to, and a key participant in, the history of popular music itself.

What has been going on there for over ninety years has called for skills that are musical, creative, technical, mechanical, interpersonal, logistical, managerial, chemical and, romantics might be tempted add, close to magic.

This is for the people who believe in the magic.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Engaging as always!

Enjoyed this like all of his books, doesn’t hang around too long and the playlist at the end is great too.

A building steeped in history.

Even though Hepworth does a great job of telling the story of Abbey Road studios, it still comes across like an overview. it's not a criticism of his work but I can't help wondering what he had to leave out.
