Seeking your memories and photos about Sgt. Pepper!!!
To tell the story from the fans’ point of view,
Bruce is looking for memories from fans throughout the world to include in his new book
The Beatles and Sgt. Pepper: A Fans’ Perspective, coming out in May 2017.
These memories can be from fans who bought the album when it came out, as well as younger fans who experienced the album for the first time years or decades after its release.
If you were living in a foreign country when the album was released: please contact Bruce to discuss the possibility of writing a few paragraphs of how the album was received in your country (reviews, radio air play, chart positions and sales).
If you have pictures of yourself with the album from 1967, please send them as well. We recently received a wonderful picture from July 1967 of three lovely teenage girls proudly displaying the album.
Obviously we will not have room in the book for all of the comments we receive, but we will do our best to provide a wide sampling of fan memories. We will also place comments on our website.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: MARCH 22, 2017
