"The walrus" may have been Paul, but Paul was not, and seemingly never will be, dead.
The immortal (he's 76) and incomparable Paul McCartney recently took a solo stroll across the famous Abbey Road intersection, forever associated with the cover of the 1969 Beatles album "Abbey Road." And while doing so, the former Beatle explained once and for all that there was no hidden message behind going barefoot the first time. Instead, CNN reported McCartney claims it was hot that day, and he kicked off his sandals. Why walking on the hot road in bare feet was more comfortable than having shoes on is unclear, meaning McCartney has replaced one Beatles riddle with another.
