BBC video series about every person on the cover of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Beatles always said their biggest regret about that cover was accidentally leaving off Elvis, who was one of their biggest heroes.


Here’s the original album cover, and two other album covers I think the BBC should consider giving documentary treatments. Ironically, Zappa didn’t forget Elvis, and The Monkees didn’t forget Zappa, who often played with them in studio. Fun fact: The Monkees we’re hanging out with The Beatles when the Fab Four were working on the Sgt. Pepper’s album in England. Mike Nesmith of The Monkees was even in studio when A Day In The Life was being recorded, and can even be seen in some of John Lennon’s home movies. =)
