Now over five decades later, the Fab Four continue to be the most celebrated musical group in Rock history. And Beatlemania is alive and well…recently Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson announced that he is going to be putting together a new film featuring footage from the Beatles 1969 Let it Be sessions and last Fall, Apple Records re-released the classic Beatles Abbey Road album for its 50th anniversary.
