Paul McCartney Sgt. Pepper Exclusive: “It Was A Risk!”

PAUL McCARTNEY HELPS MOJO celebrate 50 years of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with an exclusive interview in the magazine that hits UK shops on Tuesday, April 25. He recalls the circumstances surrounding the group’s most groundbreaking album and gives his verdict on the new stereo mix designed to add legs to one of popular music’s key benchmarks.

But as McCartney reminds MOJO, before Sgt. Pepper became an icon, there was a period of critical bemusement. How dare Beatles band go all weird?
“We were always being told, ‘You’re gonna lose all your fans with this one.’” McCartney tells MOJO. “And we’d say, ‘Well, we’ll lose some but we’ll gain some.’ We’ve gotta advance.”

Liverpool Presents Sgt Pepper at 50

news

0 0

It was a golden summer – and now it’s a golden anniversary.  The Summer of Love of 1967 was a time to break free, to celebrate creativity, to revel in a counter-culture, to – as Timothy Leary famously suggested – ‘turn on, tune in, drop out’.

In America, Scott Mackenzie implored his listeners to ‘be sure to wear flowers in your hair’, while in London Pink Floyd headlined the 14 Hour Technicolor Dream at Alexandra Palace.

And on June 1, 1967 the Beatles added their own voice to the musical mix with the release of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

To mark this special anniversary, Liverpool has commissioned 13 never-before-seen events, influenced by each track on the album. Internationally-renowned artists are working in partnership with the city’s homegrown creative talent to bring to life this series of incredible reimagined pieces of work. Expect dance, music, art, theatre and sheer magical spectacle on a large – and small – scale, as their very special celebration unfolds.

May 25 to June 16, as the city pays tribute to its own four musical pioneers and the piece of ‘art’ they produced in the only way it knows how – by pushing artistic boundaries and celebrating creativity in all its forms.

We hope you will enjoy the show.

#SgtPepper50.
