Come back … in time! Paul McCartney recreates iconic Abbey Road album cover as he walks along London’s pedestrian crossing










Maybe it was something in the way he moved – but even with a mask on, there was no doubt about Sir Paul McCartney as he walked through that zebra crossing.

And rightly so, the 79-year-old was walking near the legendary Abbey Road level crossing captured on the cover of the 1969 Beatles album.

A shocked taxi driver even recognized him and waved to him as the superstar crossed the road in St John’s Wood, north London.

Sir Paul, who wore a black jacket, cap and jogging pants, is currently promoting his new book The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present, published last week.

He then strolled along a canal before visiting a vintage car store.

Sir Paul, who owns a fleet of luxury cars, recently shared with fans his appreciation for public transport.

He said: “I just like the buses. I also like trains. Once you’ve climbed [the bus] you had that half hour to look around and i loved watching Liverpool and the people.

The Beatles star has revealed that his parents were “the original inspiration” for many of his songs.

He said: “Thinking about the songs I wrote at every stage of my career, I realized that my parents, Jim and Mary McCartney, were the original inspiration for so much that I wrote.

“My mother was very reassuring and, as so many women often are, it was also her who supported our family.

“She kept us morale high.
