Chaos & Creation at Abbey Road: Paul McCartney Revisits The Beatles’ Fabled Recording Studio

In 2005, Paul McCart­ney returned to Stu­dio 2 at Abbey Road, the famous (and recent­ly endan­gered) site where the The Bea­t­les record­ed their won­drous albums. (Watch some orig­i­nal footage here.) As part of the BBC pro­duc­tion, Chaos & Cre­ation at Abbey Road, McCart­ney intro­duces view­ers to vin­tage instru­ments used by the band and an assort­ment of record­ing tech­niques. And, above, we have Sir Paul recount­ing the very first moments when he and John Lennon met, then break­ing into a ver­sion of “Twen­ty Flight Rock,” the Eddie Cochran song he played to audi­tion for The Quar­ry Men (lat­er to become The Bea­t­les). You can watch the full pro­gram above.
