20 Years Ago Today…. or is it 50?

You know the lyrics and if you don’t you can read them on the back of the Album cover. Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles. 50 years ago an album that woke me up to rock-n-roll music.

I was very young when it was first released but I was 12 or 13 when I heard it for the first time, that’s when The Beatles would become my favorite band. I don’t remember all the Christmas Radio shows they did and never attended a live performance of The Beatles but that doesn’t take away from my love for their music.

Any time a listen to music by the The Beatles I am brought back to my younger years and hearing the album at my best friends house on his Hi-Fi (Not Wi-Fi).

I always wondered what would be different if John lived longer. Maybe a reunion, maybe just one more album from the Fab Four. I am not an aficionado of The Beatles trivia I just love all of their music. I have three copies of the vinyl and one I found in a second hand store with all the cutouts and stickers that came with the original release. What a find.
