John Kosh Interview

From Paul McCartney’s recreation of the Abbey Road cover, 1993

Friends of this blog will have noticed that we are very fond of the Abbey Road cover photo session. Today I’d like to direct you to a new interview with John Kosh, who designed the cover. Here’s a highlight, regarding the “Paul-is-dead” nonsense and Derek Taylor’s response: “And Derek, who was brilliant as a promotional artist, said: ‘Let it roll. Don’t deny it!’ It (the rumour?) sold 26 million albums.” Another quote: “I decided not to put the name ‘the Beatles’ on the cover — or ‘Abbey Road.’ Because I thought, ‘Well, this is the biggest band in the world — why would you need to do that?'”.
