Man in the Background on "Abbey Road" Revealed
« on: October 15, 2011, 01:06:53 AM »

Interesting...I just found an article about the man standing in the background on Abbey Road. His name was Paul Cole, and he didn't realize what was going on, until 1970 (a year later) when he saw himself on the Abbey Road cover. Apparently he didn't care for the Beatles, and thinks they're a bunch of "kooks". Here are a couple articles with more of the story:

Also, it looks like he died back in February 2008 at the age of 96.
