According to People, McCartney and Starr were spotted at the bash with their respective wives, Nancy Shevell and Barbara Bach. Others in attendance included George Harrison‘s widow, Olivia, as well as Nile Rodgers, Rocketman star Taron Egerton, Sir Patrick Stewart and The Hobbit actor Martin Freeman.

The Beatles recorded most of 1969’s Abbey Road album at the famed recording facility, then known as EMI Studios. The band also took the album’s iconic cover photo at a crosswalk near the entrance to the studio, which is located on Abbey Road.

Paul and Ringo also reunited at an event held last week in London that celebrated the launch of Linda McCartney: The Polaroid Diaries, a new book of photos by McCartney’s late first wife, Linda.

In addition, McCartney has contributed bass and backing vocals to a track that will appear on Starr’s forthcoming solo album, What’s My Name, which will be released on October 25. The song is a cover of “Grow Old with Me,” a rarity by their late Beatles band mate John Lennon.
