Jimi Hendrix and Abbey Road — A London Experience, September 18,1970

Our homeward route takes us down Abbey Road, a street of some significance in the summer of 1970. The Beatles may have broken up but London is still the center of the rock and roll universe, and to walk down Abbey Road past the EMI studios and the crosswalk pictured on the cover of the album of the same name still carries a charge.
