Q: Did one of the FIS shoot the photo on the cover of Abbey Road?

A: No. We were on the short list, but at the last second our shot got scraped, and our idea was stolen by Paul and photographed Iain Macmillian. What a buncha jerks.

Hopefully that answers all your questions. I really can’t think of anything else off the top of my head. Thanks for reading FIS!
