“I’m running across the street where I look back and I see it’s that iconic crosswalk that the Beatles have the album cover for Abbey Road on and instantly I’m like, ‘What the hell is happening to me right now?’,” Rami continued. “I run across there, meetings on the fourth floor and around the third floor I’m passing all these photos of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and every band that you love. Suddenly, Freddie Mercury’s face just kind of staring at me, telling me, ‘Don’t do this’.”
