My 15 minutes of fame :>) August 8th 2009. 40 years since the Beatles crossed Abbey Road, I thought it would be a good idea to organise a tour that would cross Abbey Road exactly 40 years to the minute since the Beatles. I got the great group Sgt Pepper’s Only Dartboard Band to lead us across, dressed as the Beatles were 40 years before. They arrived in a replica of John Lennon Psychedelic Rolls Royce. I thought we might get a few press people interested… Well, when we arrived at Abbey Road on the tour, there were about 15 TV crews, scores of photographers, and hundreds of Beatles fans! The police closed Abbey Road for an hour, and my had an impromptu party in the middle of the road. A day to remember!
Here is a great video of me and my group trying to cross Abbey Road, with seemingly hundreds of cameras recording the proceedings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8kSwqkGuSY
We cross Abbey Road 5 days a week on my London Beatles Walks. For more info see http://www.beatlesinlondon.com
