Olympic Studios sold by EMI

Another sad day for Music, EMI has sold the famous Olympic studios in Barnes, London.
EMi sold it to a businessman for 3.5 M pounds, who is considering a number of options for the site including a cinema (!?!)
Many famous artists recorded there ( Beatles , Led Zep , Hendrix, DeepPurple, Queen , Thin Lizzy, Oasis , Madonna Bjork... in fact everybody )
The Rolling Stones recorded 5 or 6 albums there.
The studio already closed its door for the last time on Jan 30th 2009.
beeing the last band to have recorded there with "No line on the horizon".

Everybody tried to save Abbey Road studios but Olympic is as important to music.
Too bad !!!
