Was exactly as we expected. My 13 year old daughter recently discovered the Beatles and was adamant we visit Abbey Road. It was a light, easy pleasant walk from Baker Street and we all enjoyed the store and walking across the iconic zebra crossing.

My miracle at Abbey Road Studio First of all, I’m sorry for Sir. Gorge Martin and Keith Emerson(ELP) The most famous recording studio named Abbey Road in the world is at North-West London. I visited in there at the day was before 2days of my 15days UK tour(Edinburgh・Glasgow・Liverpool・Wembley Stadium). The Beatles had recorded many great singles and albums at there. Many musicians in the world have been coming due to record. One of Japanese musician is Kazuo Zaitu (ex Tulip)or チャゲ&飛鳥. Zaitu and I used to talk about Abbey Road Studio at Tokyo SF studio. Everyone used to take a photo at it sound like The Beatles album” Abbey Road” in front of studio, me too. This location is in quiet residential section. I was very surprised the quiet due to record Rock &Roll. I went to there by London Cub, couldn’t see Bus /Double-decker stop. There was Rolls Royce in parking of Studio. I was perfect 120% hick took a photos at stairs The Beatles had done up and down many times. I asked to a guard man ”Can I come into inside?” The answer was surly” No”. But it happened to my miracle. The Beatles or Pink Floyd recording engineer Alan Parson was recording as his band ”The Alan Parsons Project” then. His band guitarist Ian Bairnson came out due to take a rest with Scotch glass &smoke. As soon as possible he saw me, he asked me“Are you Japanese? You, Beatles?” I said ”Sure, I’m crazy about The Beatles came all the way from Japan. Ian said “Do you wanna come into inside?” I said“ Sure, sure”. Ian said“OK easy, come in. But hold on to drink & smoke “I said ”Sure” He said a guard man that he was OK. Abbey Road Studio has two studios; one is big for orchestra another is normal that The Beatles used.  There was game some machines to relax. There was a play back room at right hand, he lead me the way to it. He gave me a green light to take photos inside and touched with mixing tag. Dreams come true!! “ How lucky man I am! I’m dreaming?” and without no appointment and no connection. I had been working at AM radio in Japan, My reason why I do wanna come near and strong courage. I have not been spiking English even today, but I toured UK/Edinburgh・Glasgow・Liverpool・Wembley Stadium via domestic air, train for 15 days. I got on a train to London from Liverpool sounds like firm “A Hard Days Night”. That train’s conductor happened to be a classmate of John Lennon at high school. He proudly told to me about John Lennon was one of his friends. He traded my general ticket in for special ticket. Back to Abbey Road Studio, Ian said he didn’t have any souvenir for me. Then he gave me Abbey Road Studio rental chart and big poster. Ian asked me ”The Alan Parsons Project” was popular in Japan? Ware you going to get their new album in Japan?” I said “Sure”. And he told me are you interested in Duran Duran? ( They are a peak in the world, then)If you don’t mind, Ian invited me to their rehearsal. Unfortunately, I told him I had to come back to Japan tomorrow, Thanks you very mush. I never forget you and your kindness. If I would stay in UK? At last I asked to him why you gave a me a permission to come into? Ian said my girl friend was cute Japanese, That’s it. Oh my goodness! PS: I’m poor at English.

Take the Underground to St John's Wood. When you exit the station, walk directly across the street. It's a 3 minute walk from there. DO NOT go to the Abbey Road station. It's completely on the the other side of the city.
