The Beatles Discuss Abbey Road, Let It Be, and the Future of The Beatles in 1969-70 Interviews

An edit of Beatles interviews from 1969 to 1970. Each Beatle generally sounds positive and supportive of each others’ songs and solo projects, but also realistic about the business issues they had been going through.

They also seem surprisingly open to making more Beatles songs and albums in 1970 and beyond.

This audio seems to contradict a central myth of the Beatles that they made Abbey Road thinking it would be their last album.

Why Don’t We Do it in the Road: A Short Film on the Famous Crosswalk From the Beatles’ Abbey Road Album Cover

 

A lyrical portrait of one of London’s most peculiar tourist attractions – a humble pedestrian crossing in St John’s Wood. But this isn’t any ordinary piece of street furniture, a 10 minute photo session back in the 
summer of 1969 saw to that. A couple of weeks after Neil Armstrong took his giant leap, the Beatles took 
a few short steps across Abbey Road and the rest is history. Roughly timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first recording session at Abbey Road Studios, this quirky short film explores a tiny part of London that is, in the words of narrator Roger McGough, suffused with a sort of magic.

The cast of the TODAY show created an amazingly accurate homage to the Beatles’ iconic Abbey Road cover, considering they did it with two females (not counting Matt Lauer) and a black man.
