London, July 24 (IANS) Ahead of the 49th anniversary of the release of Abbey Road, the Beatles legend Paul McCartney and his daughter Mary recreated its album cover in front of crowds of fans here.
Dressed in a white shirt, burgundy pants and sandals, McCartney crossed the street outside of Abbey Road Studios to the delight of die-hard Beatles fans, reports people.com.
“Why did the Beatle cross the Abbey Road,” Mary hilariously captioned videos of her famous father taking a stroll.
While on Instagram Story, McCartney took fan questions, including one inquiry about why he wasn’t wearing any shoes for the original cover art, which came out on August 8, 1969.
“It was a very hot day and I happened to be wearing sandals like I am today so I just kicked them off because it was so hot we went across barefoot. There was no special meaning,” he clarified.
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.
Also in attendance were McCartney’s daughter, fashion designer Stella McCartney and actress Liv Tyler.
