"It Was Twenty Years Ago Today..I'd Love To Turn You On" - Jim Leonard Discusses Meaning, Memory And Marijuana In Sgt. Pepper
Tuesday April 17, 2012: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Forty-five years ago, the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to an anxious world. Called "the greatest rock album," "the greatest pop album," "the greatest concept album," and simply "the greatest album" of all time, it is an art work, an artifice, and an artifact. But what does it mean?
Jim Leonard, freelance musicologist, takes his best shot at an answer at this event and promises that "A splendid time is guaranteed for all." This event is co-sponsored by the Michigan Theater and held in conjunction with their April 21 concert - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Performed By THE FAB FAUX.
