Abstract

I was 3 months short of 16 when Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was released in the United States. It was the summer of 1967 and it seemed that this record was playing everywhere I went. My friends and I would join in with the playfully creative mood of the Sgt. Pepper genre and play air drums and guitar to the opening track or try to imitate the syncopated rhythms of the Indian drummers on Within You Without You.
