During a recent Q&A to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles classic Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Paul McCartney revealed the origin of the classic album title.
Turns out it was a misunderstanding, plain and simple.
Sir Paul said: ‘I was coming back from a trip abroad with our roadie, Mal Evans. We were eating and he asked me to pass the salt and pepper ... I thought he said, “Sergeant Pepper”.
'I went, “Oh! Wait a minute, that’s a great idea!”
‘I started thinking about Sergeant Pepper as a character. I thought it would be a very interesting idea for us to assume alter egos for this album we were about to make.
‘I said, “It will mean, when I approach the mic, it’s not Paul McCartney. I don’t have to think this is a Paul McCartney song.”’
