    It's an experience I will never forget, taking the London subway to a stop near Abbey Road Studio. I got off my stop, but wasn't sure which way to go. There was a vendor selling Beatles memorabilia in a small glass booth and I asked which way to Abbey Road. It's nice older neighborhood with many churches of different faiths on the way. It was almost dusk, so I was alone walking across the well-known crosswalk to Abbey Road studio. The large white stone wall in front of the studio was covered with graffiti from all over the world. It was peaceful and quiet with no music coming from the studio with nobody seen inside. I can only imagine the sounds that might have been heard 50 years ago with the four lads from Liverpool playing their final songs as a band. "And, in the end
    The love you take Is equal to the love you make" – The End

    Well, evidence is mounting that the British Royalists & American-based redcoat-mafia abusing their Empire were behind the deaths of several American rockstars.
    That allowed the Beatles and other Brutish– I mean British– bands to draw income that would have otherwise been in American studios owned by rockstars like Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison and even Kurt Cobain.
