The Beatles – 50 Years On

On the 50th anniversary of the famous Abbey Road photograph, Beatles enthusiasts made the pilgrimage to London to recreate Iain MacMillan’s 1969 photograph. The image of John Lennon, Sir Ringo Starr, Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison outside the EMI Studios in St John’s Wood is one of music’s most iconic moments.

Abbey Road 50 Years On

Lookalike band the Fab Four (above) stopped traffic on Abbey Road at 11:38 on Thursday morning, the exact time the cover shots were supposed to have been taken.

Chris, who travelled from New Zealand to Abbey Road for the anniversary – says that the 11,500 mile trip was worth it. “It’s dedication or stupidity,” he says. “But it’s a trip of a lifetime. When you’re here you feel like you are part of the whole thing again.”

“The best thing about the Beatles is that it unites people from all over the world,” says Patrick Bourke, who came from Liverpool to witness the anniversary. “I’ve met people from Argentina, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Germany, Australia and New Zealand, and that was their greatest gift – that unification. Down here today nobody cares about religion or the colour of people’s skin, all they want to do is talk about music.”
