One of the most famous images of THE BEATLES is the cover of the “Abbey Road” with John, Paul, George and Ringo crossing the street that the album and the Beatles’ famous recording studio are named for. To this day it’s a must do photo op for any Beatles fan.
It’s the only Beatles cover to not feature their name OR the album title.
On Monday . . . nearly 49 years to the date the famous photo was taken . . . Paul crossed Abbey Road again, and his daughter Mary filmed it. On the actual cover, Paul is BAREFOOT . . . but this time he was wearing SANDALS. Why was he barefoot? Paul said there was no special meaning behind it at all. It was a very hot day and he happened to be wearing sandals, so he just kicked them off because it was so hot and we went across barefoot.
The special visit to Abbey Road Studios was not only for the famous crosswalk but to also play four new songs from his upcoming Egypt Station album as part of a secret show. Neeless to say it didn’t take long for word to spread and fans showed up by the hundreds.
