Hepworth: "Thanks to four young millionaires who couldn't be bothered to do anything more than to step onto a zebra crossing.

He was involved in the launch and editing of magazines such as Smash Hits, Q, Mojo and The Word, among many others. Hepworth's book is an excellent choice for music enthusiasts who want to delve into the fascinating history and magic that was produced within the walls of the world-renowned recording studio that is a part of British culture.He does a really meticulous job of here of charting the history of the world-famous studios, and it makes for a fascinating read. He is also the author of " Solid State: The Story of Abbey Road and the End of the Beatles," published in 2019 in celebration of the album’s 50th anniversary, " John Lennon, 1980: The Last Days in the Life" and the authorized biography " Living the Beatles Legend: The Untold Story of Mal Evans" (November 2023). Along with Mark Ellen and Alex Gold I'm running Word In Your Ear, which is all about events in "normal" times and is all about podcasts, videocasts and digital author events at the moment. Though the studio is, of course, synonymous with the legendary work of The Beatles and Pink Floyd, our history contains many lesser-known but equally special recordings from Paul Robeson, Fats Waller, The Hollies, Deep Purple, Cilla Black, Shirley Bassey, John Williams, Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Massive Attack, Muse, Travis, Oasis, Nile Rodgers, Brockhampton, Adele, Little Simz, Sam Smith and many more. Those who passed through our doors include the unstoppable ‘Barbie’ up for Best Picture and Best Original Song with ‘I’m Just Ken’, the inspiring ‘Society Of The Snow’ up for Best International Feature Film and the mind-blowing ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ up for Best Animated .

Aller mest kjent for platene The Beatles spilte inn der, ikke minst fordi det siste bandet spilte inn i studioet fikk navnet Abbey Road. Abbey Road claims that exalted status, of course, because it’s where the Beatles made their iconic, innovative albums with the assistance of producer George Martin, who developed his knack for sonic experimentation by recording comedy albums for the likes of Peter Sellers. It zips along with lots of love and affection for the craft and creativity of making music in a studio. It’s June 6, 1962: an ordinary Wednesday evening (ordinary in the way that most extraordinary moments start out like any other). And Norman Smith [again: see above], who’s the engineer, looks at the lyrics lying around and thinks, ‘They’ve blown it this time; they’ve gone too far this time.You will come away dazzled by all of the dots Hepworth connects behind the scenes here, in what in many ways is the soundtrack of our lives. We get first hand accounts from engineers and producers to band members and just enough technical information. The narrative gets off to a good start with Anderson’s nostalgic memories of her childhood in coastal Vancouver, raised by very young, very wild, and not very competent parents. Nonetheless this is a fascinating account of the myriad characters who have worked within the hallowed halls of this famous studio from the 1930's to the present day.
