British musical theatre impresario Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is "very interested" in buying London's Abbey Road recording studios, made famous by the Beatles, his spokesman said over the weekend. Webber, whose stage musicals include Cats and Phantom of the Opera, "thinks it is vital that the studios are saved for the future of the music industry in the UK", his spokesman said. Debt-laden music company EMI is seeking buyers for the studios in North London and is talking to a few interested parties but a deal is not imminent, a person familiar with the situation said.
