English Rock Royalty honor Sgt. Pepper Album Cover.

Rock's English royalty were gathered at London's Royal Albert Hall, but not for a music performance,  instead to honor Peter Blake, the pop artist who created one of the 60's most iconic images. The cover of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover was his doing. All those celebrities on the cover, the trippy group photo that seemed to draw you into another world. Peter Blake turned 80 last month, and all these rock giants came to pay their respect and to check out some of his other work that is on display at the Hall. In honor of his birthday, he has re-created the famous Album Cover using contemporary British cultural personalities. Amy Winehouse, J.K. Rowling, and Monty Python are among those chosen for the re-creation. Of course, the original is the best, that trippy photo of iconic celebrities was the image of 1967 that says it all. The Beatles gave us a great picture to stare at while we listen to the amazing music in the grooves. Thanks Peter Blake and happy B'day.
