At Abbey Road... Again
The first time I went to Abbey Road Studios was as a competition winner a couple of years ago to see one of my favourite musicians (like ever) Paul Weller play live in Studio One. So excited was I about seeing him that I completely overlooked the fact that Abbey Road studios is a quite special place (understatement) and does indeed come with quite a bit more history than four stoned dudes crossing the nearby zebra-crossing. In fact i was inteviewed for TV at the Weller gig about what it meant to be here. I was really really enthusiastic, honest I was but I think they wanted me to be at least a little bit enthusiastic about being in The Abbey Road Studios as I was about seeing Weller. But the truth of the matter was that we could have been anywhere. I was just excited about seeing Paul Weller play in venue so intimate that I could reach out and touch him. I somehow doubt they used the footage.
So I was back there last week shooting a corporate event for a new client. And it was a quite fantastic party... oh to be a guest at this one. But I wasn't and I worked my socks off as usual but I did get to hear some of the tour and heard amongst other things some amazing Rock 'n' Roll anecdotes.
My assistant Lucy was busy shooting selfies against all bits of musical history. Like I said I was working my socks off but I did manage to snap the beautiful Steinway Grand as we were packing the gear away.
