“Abbey Road” Recently Celebrated 43 Years of History [VIDEO]
Whether or not you are a Beatles fan-atic, a groupie, or one that could either take ’em or leave ’em, there are dates in history etched into our minds that remind us just how old we are getting, and why most people should resign as ambassador of the universe.
Take for instance the occurrences of August 8, 1969, when on a bright sunny (highly unusual) morning in London, a shuterbug by the name of Ian Macmillian snapped 10 to 15 minutes worth of film that captured the image of the final Beatles LP, “Abbey Road”, the name of their London studio.
At the time of the photo shoot, John was wearing an all white suit similar to John Travolta’s disco outfit in “Saturday Night Fever”; Ringo appeared to be in business attire, Paul was barefoot, and George looked like a regular guy crossing the street.
Many rumors swirled after the album release, as if the Volkswagen just behind Harrison’s head, along with the innocent tourist standing on the sidewalk between Lennon and Starr, provided some deep mystery about the four “mop-tops”.
If England is in your sights, forget about Big Ben, the Tower, Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, double decker buses, and Prince William. Get yourself to that famous crosswalk with three other friends and re-live a historical event that rivals standing on the grate where Marilyn Monroe’s dress became a wardrobe malfunction!
