I think I am looking too much into it as well...but at the same time I don't. It's weird.
I don't see how you could take a picture of a band, crossing that road, and not EXPECT to be compared to the Beatles. You're a band....you're crossing theroad from their cover and they were a band. So the comparison is common sense.
I have no problem with fans or tourists doing it. It just seems odd.
Now....funny enough, if they had taken the picture for themselves and it wasn't some professional shot for a photoshoot, I'd have no problem with that lol. But the sheer fact that it was for publicity, is just bad taste.
