Abbey road wasn't intended as last Beatles album
#1

Last week, The Beatles' Abbey Road returned to number one, almost 50 years after its original release.

Until recently, it was believed the band had entered the studio knowing they were making their final album - hoping to go out on a high after the fractious sessions for Let It Be.

But Beatles expert Mark Lewisohn recently uncovered a tape of the Fab Four discussing a follow-up in 1969.

Now Ringo Starr has confirmed the band wanted to keep recording into the '70s.

"We did do Abbey Road and we was like, 'Okay that's pretty good,'" he told BBC 6 Music, "but none of us said, 'OK, that's the last time we'll ever play together'. Nobody said that. I never felt that.



To be honest, even if they couldn't see it, I think it was pretty obvious by that point that the split was coming. The cracks had already been showing for a couple of years (for example, John Lennon once said that the 'White Album' of 1968 had no actual 'Beatles music' on it with the four of them working together: it was all just "John and the band", "Paul and the band" and so on).

So, even if there had been another album after Abbey Road, I honestly doubt the resulting music would have been much good :( .
