Paul McCartney Recreates the Iconic Beatles Photo at Abbey Road 49 Years Later
Revisiting the same old road - 49 years later.

When you think of The Beatles, it is the cover of their album, 'Abbey Road' that comes to mind first. Almost everyone has seen the picture - it is perhaps the most common Beatles poster you see anywhere.

This album cover of Abbey Road was unique because it had no printed words. It was simply just a picture of The Beatles crossing a street, taken from the side.

The album was titled 'Abbey Road' because it led to 'Abbey Studios' where the album was recorded - and is even at present day a very reputed studio which has had artists like Pink Floyd record there.


Yesterday, 49 years after the iconic cover was shot, Paul McCarthy crossed the same road - this time, however, on his own.

He posted a clip on Instagram of the moment, recreating the cover from almost 50 years ago.
