This year is the 40th anniversary of the “Summer of Love” AND more importantly, the release of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” You may or may not think the album is all that (I think it was a seminal album that changed the direction of pop music — YMMV), but you certainly get a kick out of the cover, right? Except — who ARE all those people?
Well, now you can find out! Go to www.oxforddnb.com/public/sgtpepper/ and move your mouse over the cover. You’ll get popups for everyone on there who is actually a person — and a few that aren’t! Cool way to waste fifteen minutes or more.
