The album Abbey Road was originally going to be called Everest, named after the brand of cigarette Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick was smoking at the time.

Paul McCartney even wanted the Beatles to go to Tibet and pose in front of Mount Everest for the album cover.

Other suggestions were Four In The Bar and All Good Children Go To Heaven, before Ringo joked that they could call it Abbey Road.


The Abbey Road pedestrian crossing in Northern London is one of the world’s most famous because it is on the cover of a Beatles album. Now, the British government has put it on the list of national heritage sites.
