Patrick Stewart celebrates 50th anniversary of Beatles' Abbey Road album

Hollywood celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' Abbey Road album on Thursday (September 27) with a temporary zebra crosswalk and a speech from longtime fan and friend, actor Patrick Stewart.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration)

Stewart unveiled a sign dedicated to the album at the event and recalled a story about driving the Aston Martin of Beatles' member Paul McCartney when he was a 24 year-old.

"We drove from Bristol to Bath and back.

And all the way Paul kept saying, 'come on put your foot down overtake, overtake.'

And all I could think was, if I killed Paul McCartney." For Stewart, being able to call Paul and Ringo friends is still surreal.

"I saw Paul and Ringo about six weeks ago, just by accident, by chance in a restaurant.

And it is always whenever I meet Paul as though no time has passed at all.

He has an immediacy of behaviour, a spontaneous way of behaving which is remarkable." The Abbey Road album was released on September 26, 1969 and was the last one the group recorded together as a band.

A special anniversary edition of the album has been released with new mixes and unreleased session recordings and demos.
