It Was 50 Years Ago This Week

. . . And the final chord on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” still reverberates. Who’s celebrating its 50th anniversary? Baby boomers around the world (I have my scratched-up mono vinyl album), younger generations (I hope), Capitol and Apple Records, and naturally the BBC with special programming. The Beatles are still a business, even if two of the founders are gone. “And in the end / The love you take / Is equal to the love you make.”
