On The Beatles' final US tour in 1966, Paul McCartney was struck by the inventiveness of the West Coast hippy groups, with names such as Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, and Big Brother and the Holding Company. In November that year, on a post-holiday flight from Nairobi to England, he came up with the idea of an alter-ego for the band, which would perform an entire album before an audience.

Some versions of events hold that Mal Evans came up with the name Sgt Pepper. It is believed to have been inspired by Evans asking McCartney what the letters S and P stood for on the salt and pepper sachets on their in-flight meal trays.

Switching between straightforward rock verses and instrumental bridges featuring a French horn quartet, punctuated by three-part harmonies from McCartney, Lennon and Harrison, the song is more of an introduction to the Sgt Pepper concept than a rounded song.

You've got this all wrong.
Please stop spreading you made up stories and your attempt to rewrite Beatle history.

On the Beatles final US tour in 1966, Paul McCartney was struck down by anal herpes he caught from gay West Coast hippies. In November that year, after a visit to his gynecologist, he came up with the idea of an anal gangbang, which he'd perform AssToMouth sex on an entire audience.

Some versions of events hold that Liberace came up with the name Sgt Pepper. It is believed to have been also inspired by Rock Hudson, asking McCartney what the letters S and P stood for, and he said it was for the Semen and Poo he ate during AssToMouth gay sex.

Switching between straight and gay personnas, French kissing the butts of boy scouts, with virgin anal puncturing of young boys by McCartney, Lennon, and Harrison, they wrote songs introducing the Sgt Pepper concept of love between men and lone boys.

The Beatles group and solo are truly wonderful and as they say, haters will hate.
I cannot to my understanding see why anyone with a partly brain think Paul was replaced, he is alive and well.
And NEW is awesome.

Granted, the Monkees were a manufactured band, a corporate creation to designed milk money out of the rock craze started by the British Invasion.

However, this synthetic amalgamation of songwriters, musicians, actors, and record producers recorded some of the best pop/rock of the '60's, and that is a considerable accomplishment.

The fact that you took your time, on Christmas day, to come here and post this nonsense about a band from the1960's, speaks for itself.

Happy New Year !!!

You do know what they say about unsolicited opinions, don't you, Cletus?

The Beatles are the greatest band of all time. In fact they are very underrated. Anyone who doesn't like them, has no idea what good music is. Their will never be another band as famous, more successful or more influential than the Beatles. The only other musical artist who is in the same league as them is Elvis.

The Beatles are still a legendary band regardless of any negative criticism that might be uttered. Over Christmas, I was having a discussion with my brother in law's brother who in the past was always a Beatle fan. However, he shocked me when he told me that he did not like them anymore. I found that rather strange because I asked him if he got the new BBC CD. I really do not know what happened or why he suddenly changed his mind about them but it is quite interesting. I do not feel that way. Different people go through stages in their life and perhaps that is why he was so negative towards The Beatles. He said that they were over rated and old school. It surprised me. In the past, he gave me some great live footage of The Beatles at Shea stadiam in New York. It was the concert with overdubbed studio re recordings for a possible live album that never came out.

Hey Octo, hope you had a good Christmas. I don't understand how anyone can say they were once a Beatles fan, but now they're not. I have been a fan for 32 years. Sure I've gone through changes in my life, & I have listened to lots of different music. But, not once, have I ever thought about not being a Beatles fan. In fact, the longer I live, the more I want the Beatles music in my life. It will always be a part of my life. Even if I was the only Beatles fan in the world, it wouldn't matter, because I've never been a follower of trends. I do what makes me happy, & the Beatles music has been my happy place since I was 13. That will never change.

I had a decent Christmas but it was an adult Christmas. I didn't get many gifts because my family agreed not to exchange this year. I did have fun though. My brother in law's brother got married to The Beatles. They were played at his wedding like four or five years ago. He is still married. Perhaps, he has a new friend that talked him out of liking The Beatles. I just thought is was strange, that's all. I know that no one can make me not like Elvis. I feel the same way you do. I wouldn't care if I was the last Elvis fan on earth, I'd still listen to him. I know that kids sometimes follow what their friends like or dislike but this guy is in his forties. He loved The Beatles. So what happened? He did not explain.
