  3 Saville road
by sourbugger

Although no longer a recording studio - 3 Saville Road was the location for the Beatles' Apple Studios. The Beatles famously gave an performance on the rooftop in 1969.
Legend says that the nearby shop owners called the police to break up the noisy performance. The police station was just around the corner but, it took 40 minutes for them saunter up. Perhaps they were fans as well. Even then they agreed to John's request to complete the song they were singing.

This event proved to be their last public performance together.
