A visit to Abbey Road, the Beatles' favored studio and the location of one of the most iconic album cover photos in rock'n'roll history, is a must for any Beatles fan. Here are 5 amazing facts about the Fab Four that might surprise even the aficionados.
A widespread conspiracy theory argues Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike. Proponents claim that Paul's being barefoot on the Abbey Road cover is a clue.
After years of legal wrangling, John Lennon officially quit the Beatles on December 29, 1974 while staying at the Polynesian Village Hotel in Disney World, Florida.
Surprisingly, The Fab Four are the first band to ever feature the famous "Devil Horns" on an album cover: John Lennon makes the hand gesture on the cover of Yellow Submarine.
As big "Lord of the Rings" fans, the Beatles tried to get Stanley Kubrick to film an adaptation in which they would act the main roles. However, J.R.R. Tolkien opposed the project.
John Lennon's killer, Mark Chapman, was carrying a copy of J.D. Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye" during the shooting. He claimed his actions were inspired by the novel.

I am Denis and tickets were under sisters name.She, my friend Ryan and I met our guide Frank and immediately hit it off. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and has an easy way about him that puts you right at ease. I am a huge Beatles fanatic and I very much enjoyed discussing many things about the Fab Four. WE especially loved how he took pictues for all us as we crossed Abbey Road. Huge thanks to Frank for a super fun tour. If I have one complaint, it`s that the tour should have lasted forever...:)...Thanks again and we very highly recommend this tour!!!!!!!!
