I see that my other choices were Queen Elizabeth II and Bill Gates.

I like VB’s idea of picking people who were alive (or who had been alive) when the album cover was made.

So, strike Bill Gates.

Julie Andrews and Lewis Carroll.

Julie Andrews was very much alive in 1967 (and still is, last I heard). Unless it’s a faux Julie? (Hmmm… doesn’t work as well as Faul…) 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

SG, I believe AG is replacing Bill Gates with Julie Andrews and Lewis Carroll.

Her original choices were Queen Elizabeth II and Bill Gates.

Her new choices are Queen Elizabeth II, Julie Andrews and Lewis Carroll.

At least, that’s how I read her post.

I think Lewis Carroll Charles Dodgeson would make an excellent addition, however.

He’s already on the cover!

…OK, new way of doing this! Choose a person already on the cover…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L….._Club_Band

…and replace them with someone in a similar profession (actor, writer, etc.) of your choosing. And post a nice representative picture of them. And repeat as often as there are people left to replace (but no more than one person per post, please.)

Starting off…instead of Marlene Dietrich, Theda Bara

After AG suggested him previously, @Von Bontee said (on 27 March last year):

Sorry, no ‘biblers allowed! Not you, not myself (-selves), not mr. sun king coming together, not even Joe! (In fact, if I was re-starting this thread today, I’d put in a “no living persons under the age of 65” rule. And probably a few others, depending on how capricious I was feeling at the moment…)

@Ron Nasty, thank you for clarifying my post. In my erratic forays into the forum today, I missed that part of the conversation.

Here’s the post where Joe turned down being on the cover https://www.beatlesbible.com/f…..7/#p109129

I’d position them next to Stu in the left hand corner to keep him company. a-hard-days-night-john-6 

IMO, I think Julia Lennon and Mary McCartney would be/ have been good choices.

I think that they should replace each and every person on the cover with the orange man from the Delsym cough syrup commercials.
