Here's what he wrote about the 40th anniversary of the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This was published on Page 1 of The Oregonian yesterday, and I wanted to preserve a link to it.
A quote that happifies me: Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney on the impact of hearing Sgt. Pepper's in the 1980s:
In the ’80s all the music on the radio was hot girls and fast cars. But the Beatles told great stories. Anything could be a song. And the music is so layered and interesting; it’s like an odyssey, with all these things happening. It’s like the bedrock of how to make an album.
Edited To Add: puppetmaker40 also had memories she shared of this album, and I chimed in with additional memories on her entry.
