Now Playing Tracks

The Beatles' album 'Abbey Road' was released 45 years ago today

"While we were in the studio, our engineer Geoff Emerick always used to smoke cigarettes called Everest, so the album was going to be called Everest. We never really liked that, but we couldn’t think of anything else to call it. Then one day I said, ‘I’ve got it!’ ( - I don’t know how I thought of it - ) ‘Abbey Road!’ It’s the studio we’re in, which is fabulous, and it sounds a bit like a monastery.” - Paul McCartney
