OK, you know how these days a lot of performers are performing their "classic album" in its entirety when they tour? Well, let's imagine that Paul does that himself, and performs Pepper's, and (of course) records the show and plans to retitle it something like "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Stadium Band"...and, thrillingly, he removes all the faces from the new cover, and invites US to choose our OWN candidates!

Which is, of course, an extremely long-winded way of asking the simple question: Who would YOU include on the cover? Choose up to three.

I choose...

Bobby Orr (hockey legend)

John Coltrane (jazz tenor-saxophone legend)

Theodore Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss!)

 

9+9!! Never had that before.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

James Joyce
Gruff Rhys
Joe Meek

(Can I suggest a rule? Nobody from the original cover, and no Beatles connections - otherwise it'll just be an endless round of George, Brian and Mal. Feel free to disagree though.)

Great idea for a thread! How about the Dalai Lama?

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

George Martin, Brian Epstein and Mal Evans.george-martinbrian-epsteinmal-evans

On a serious note, I'll go for a mixture of genuinely iconic figures and slightly cult ones.

Robin Friday- "The Greatest Footballer You Never Saw" and the man who, according to Super Furry Animals, "Don't Give A Fuck".

JK Rowling- Harry Potter is the closest thing my generation have had to the Beatles.

Roger Waters- 'nuff said.

Jimi Hendrix- 'nuff said

Syd Barrett- more there for "cult" reasons than his talent.

L. Ron Hubbard- founder of scientology

Steven Moffat- my favourite TV writer, responsible for the best episodes of Doctor Who since its revival and some Sherlock.

Wesley Willis- chronic schizophrenic repetitive punk rocker.

Gio Compario- just to annoy people

Rebecca Black- as above

Tijinder Singh- my favourite active musician, and he's Indian, which would please George.

A Pikachu

Sarah Palin- because she is a genuine inspiration

Darth Vader

Franz Kafka

Richey Edwards- missing lyricist for the Manic Street Preachers

Heath Ledger

David Mitchell and Robert Webb

Reginald D. Hunter

David Attenborough

Robert Winston

Andrew Flintoff

The Stig

Terry Pratchett

Woody

Buzz Lightyear

Douglas Adams

Okay, that's incredibly male dominated (nly one serious female nomination), so I'll add the pink Power Ranger, Margret Thatcher, Lisa Simpson (and for that matter Homer Simpson), Joni Mitchell and Tracey Emin.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Sarah Palin? She should fall under the annoyance category.

An awesome thread - very thought provoking.

Right off the bat, I'm going to say Barack Obama (not a big fan but he did make history), Pablo Picasso (see Band on the Run) and MLK.

I like Joe's ground rule suggestion above. I will break it once though by suggesting the Beatles' offspring (Julian, Sean, etc...).

Great question!!

 

Damn Walrus you mentioned some of my choices.. a-hard-days-night-george-3 darn it… well here are my choices : Simone De Beauvoir, Milan Kundera and Frida Kahlo.

 

BTW Zig, there's a Sgt Pepper cover with Beatles kids : Sean replacing John, Stella replacing Paul, Zak replacing Ringo and Dhani replacing George. Here it is.

Thanks, mith! I especially liked this replacement idea from the link you shared...

Hahahaha!

The only famous people I know are Beatles people, but last year we had a class project in multimedia where we had to make a collage of all our classmates. I chose to replace the Sgt. Pepper heads with my classmates' heads. It was epicly amazingly awesome. 

 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Not more than I do believe me.. But in spite of us all this miscreant will be remembered in history - just like Hitler is.
