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?'”.
