Paul McCartney, the iconic musician and member of the Beatles, had a close call while recreating the famous cover of the "Abbey Road" album for his daughter Mary's new documentary, "If These Walls Could Talk." According to Mary, the near-accident occurred when they were leaving the studio and decided to film McCartney crossing the iconic pedestrian crossing, just as he did on the album cover in 1969.
"The bit where the car nearly ran him over on the zebra crossing, that was so funny," Mary told S Magazine. "As we were leaving [the studio], I said, 'I'll film you [on the crossing],' and he went over and this car totally didn't stop for him." This anecdote is just one of many that McCartney shared with his daughter while working on the documentary, which takes a closer look at the famous London recording studio where the Beatles recorded many of their classic hits.
McCartney offered "tips" and "snippets" about the studio, but Mary admitted that she had to learn much of the information for the first time, as their family did not often discuss their Beatles experiences. Despite her initial hesitation to take on the project due to her McCartney family name, Mary ultimately decided to go ahead with the documentary, which was originally scheduled for a global release on December 16 but has been pushed back to January 6 for viewers in the UK and Ireland.
