Friday Night Forgotten Oldie: It was 50 years ago…

“Because we were done touring, people in the media were starting to sense that there was too much of a lull, which created a vacuum, so they could bitch about us now. They’d say, ‘Oh, they’ve dried up.’ But we knew we hadn’t. It was kind of cool – behind the scenes we knew what we were making, and we knew we were very far from drying up. Actually, the exact opposite was happening – we were having a huge explosion of creative forces.”
Paul McCartney on the Sgt Pepper album

Last weekend CBS Sunday Morning’s Mark Phillips reported that 50 years ago February “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” won four Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.
