I wish we could gather for the Joe and The Mod photo shoot at Joe's place in October. We could have our own Mad Day Out while we're at it.  

Well, if that actually ends up happening, you should instead call it....

....wait for it....

....are you ready?....

....here we go....

....Mod Day Out.

How dare they put the Hofner bass into the mural. Out of all the guitars and or basses they could've chosen, George's Rocky Strat, Paul's Rickenbacker, John's Casino, etc., they choose a bass that wasn't even used in 1967, makes as much sense as when they had The Beatles using instruments like trumpets in the Yellow Submarine movie instead of guitars. Now that I think about it, I rest my case.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Is the only thing Peter Blake does is make new versions of the 'Pepper' cover? Seems to be a new one every month by him.

Those who judge this album solely on the music are missing a big part of its impact. 50 years! And the cover continues to be imitated. (Note that MAD magazine has always targeted the under-25 generation)Sgt PepperImage Enlarger

Can we add that to the Beatles Album Cover Spoofs thread? https://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/yesterday-and-today/hard-days-night-spoof-cover/

Makes me want to spend time looking for more, but I need to address Christmas cards.

I have a question about the cover of Pepper.

 

John said that,at the time the cover shot was taken,2 of them were under the influence of drugs, and the other 2 weren't. Since he brought it up,I'm assuming John was under the influence,but does anyone know which other Beatle was high?

@Shamrock-Womlbs (sorry if the @ hasn't worked, I don't know what your @ is mccartney-shrug_01_gif),John said that you can tell just by looking at the cover who was high,but it's always bugged me. George would make sense though,as he was John's LSD buddy wasn't he?

@Shamrock Womlbs is the @ for Shamrock Wolmbs, @Father McKenzie.

I thought it was Ringo.

Quote from the 'Anthology' book

John: If you look closely at the album cover, you'll see two people who are flying, and two who aren't. (That's just a little 'in' joke. Two of them didn't share it with two others.)

Ringo: Have a look at the cover and come to your own conclusion! There's a lot of red-eyed photos around.

Yup, just write @ + lillo78 which used to be my user name...

Anyway, i doubt they were high on LSD since , i think, they never took it consciously while recording and right after that photo session they headed to Abbey Road to work on some overdubs... probably they had a joint or two (or a dozen) and in that case i don't know why only two were flying when all of them were pot/weed smokers at that time (maybe Ringo to a lesser extent)

Judging by their eyes, I always assumed it was George and Ringo. I could be wrong.

Going off of eyes I would guess Paul, but off of a combination of eyes and behavioral history, I guess George and John. Ringo’s eyes honestly look fine. John and George both have that ‘look’ from their wide open pupils. Paul’s eyes look crazy.

Paul is just crazy anyway.  George appears stoned out of his gourd.  Don't know about the LSD though.
