First they were going, then they weren't.
As we told a little more than a week ago, Molly Hatchet was packed and ready to go to the UK, but the local police in Derbyshire cancelled the festival they were to perform at.
Now we hear from an inside source that undaunted, Bobby Ingram and the guys decided they are still going into Abbey Road to record, but now it will be November or December instead.
The two Beatle songs they are recording, "Helter Skelter" and "Back In The USSR," will be available when their #17 LP, on SPV Records, is released in the Spring of '09.

About a month ago, we told you here on the What Goes On Beatles News Blog about how Molly Hatchet was about to visit Abbey Road in London to record two Beatles songs.
Unfortunately, according to The Florida Times-Union, those plans have been cancelled.
Seems the group was scheduled to play at the Rock & Blues Custom show in England, but the show was cancelled because local authorities refused to give the festival permits, fearing motorcycle gang violence.
Since the rock festival was cancelled, so was Molly Hatchet's trip to England, dashing their hopes, at least for the time being, of recording at Abbey Road.

The whole Molly Hatchet band are avid Beatles fans, and next month they have booked Abbey Road Studios to record two of their favorite Beatle songs, "Helter Skelter" and "Back In The USSR". These tracks will be featured on their forthcoming album.
Hatchet's leader Bobby Ingram said they've performed both Beatle classics lots of times in concert but now they are going to record them for real. "Going to Abbey Road Studios is one of those lifetime opportunities that comes along and you jump at it. The band is so pumped about recording there. It just fell into place and we were lucky they had two open days for us. How cool is that?"
The band plans to post a site and have their fans journey with them while they record Molly Hatchet #17, the untitled LP to be out later this year. Their official website is www.mollyhatchet.com.
