Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – The Movie!
Written by Rebeka Knott
After the Beatles had retired from touring, Paul McCartney came up with the concept for a new song about an Edwardian era military band; i.e., Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. After the song was recorded, McCartney thought it would be a great idea to compose and release an entire album around the song. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band would be the title track and the album would revolve around the concept of the fictitious military band, as a story plays out.
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is a 1978 American, musical movie which depicts a band as they challenge the music industry and battle evil forces who are determined to steal their instruments and compromise their beloved home town, Heartland. The movie plays out as a musical but includes a narrator, Mr. Kite, to move the story along.
