The Beatles come together for a photo shoot
December 8, 2010
Thanks to Jeff B. for sending along this rarely-seen, but classic photo of John, Ringo, Paul, and George, only moments away from shooting the cover photo for “Abbey Road,” arguably the most famous album cover in rock history.
“Here we have Ringo talking to a sweet old lady, Paul harmlessly fixing Ringo’s collar, John inhaling a deep breath and George taking a moment of contemplation for himself. And yet, even in this photo, a toss away, an unimportant moment in time, it somehow manages to capture all of their singular personality traits that have been mythologized by Beatles lovers all over the world. “
Lennon would have been 70 this year. Just last month, the Beatles catalog was officially released on iTunes.
