BEAT EXCLUSIVE: A Behind The Scenes Story Of Beatles' Sgt. Pepper

Tony Barrow, KRLA Beat, 3 June 1967

LONDON — On the first day of February THE BEATLES began to record a song called 'SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND'. Paul had contributed the basic ideas for the number so Paul was assigned to handle the main vocal action — with the others joining him for the chorus segments.
