Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' Abbey Road by attending a party Thursday night at the studio that bears the album's name. Also on hand were George Harrison's widow, Olivia, Nile Rogers, and actor Taron Egerton, who portrayed Elton John in Rocketman,
As part of today's release of the 50th anniversary of Abbey Road, a decorative manhole cover replicating the album sleeve has been installed just yards away from the legendary North London studio where the album was recorded and on whose crosswalk they shot the famous cross cover.
And, if you don't have 47 minutes to listen to the original album, then there is a 50-second version by Alex Lacamoire, the musical director of the Broadway hits Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen. The clip actually took two hours to film and the piano played is affectionately known as "Mrs. Mills," which was used on various Beatles tracks.
