It was forty years ago today…
…Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play.
They’ve been going in and out of style,
but they’re guaranteed to raise a smile.
So let me introduce to you,
the act you’ve known for all these years…
Released four decades ago today in the UK and tomorrow in the US. Here’s to John, Paul, George, Ringo, and everybody who appeared on the cover.
