Hi. Damian here. Today on Newshour we’re going to be looking back at an iconic image – four men, one barefoot, walking across a pedestrian crossing in north London. This became one of the most famous album covers of all time.
The four men were the Beatles and it was the picture on the cover of their Abbey Road album. I asked some of my colleagues what their favourite covers were. Richard likes Aerosmith Rocks for its “sheer gorgeousness”, while Rebecca chose David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs for its illustration of hybrid half man, half dog characters.
What is your favourite album cover?
And what do you make of all the conspiracy theories surrounding the Abbey Road cover? … the most famous of which is the “Paul is Dead” urban legend.
