The 40th anniversary of Sgt Pepper is upon us - and I know this means next to nothing to a ton of people born after the Summer of Love. My 20- and 30-something friends roll their eyes when I use Beatles metaphors because to them I am just talking about "another band."
I can understand the feeling and until now had no way of explaining why the Beatles were SUCH a huge deal.
THIS piece does it. If you've ever wondered why the old guy in your office gets a tear in his eye when a Beatles tune comes on the radio, THIS piece may shed some light.
Enjoy - or as Sgt Pepper said, "I hope you will enjoy the show."
