Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 8/8/14 Beatles Walk Across Abbey Road

Apple Records/EMI

(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)

It’s another historic day for Rock ‘n’ Roll. August 8, 1969 was the day that John, Paul, George, and Ringo made their famous walk across Abbey Road in North London. The picture taken turned into the iconic album cover, one of the most recognized album arts ever. How the concept was derived is quite the interesting story. The album was set to be entitled Everest, after engineer Geoff Emerick’s cigarette brand of choice. The Fab Four were initially planning a trip to The Himalayas to shoot the cover. But, pressure from EMI Records didn’t allow time for that. So, they walked outside of their studios, Iain Macmillan snapped a photo, and history was made.

Tonight, three from the iconic Abbey Road LP…The Beatles’ farewell, if you will…for your Six O’Clock Triple Shot. Paul and Ringo represent with “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” and “Octopus Garden”, and we round it out with the ultimate collaboration of talent, melodies, and harmonies with the entire Abbey Road Medley. Hear it only on 94.9 WMMQ!
