n the late 70's / early 80s, Dr. Pepper fans were given a nickname: the Peppers. I know that sounds ridiculous today, but it was a simpler time...
We recently found this gem from the 80s TV show Hello Nashville on Channel 4 WSMV in the 80s!
On June 20th 1966, The Beatles released the album with their most controversial cover of all time, the Butcher Cover of the Album "Yesterday and Today". This cover, part of a photo shoot by Photographer Robert Whitaker titled A Somnambulant Adventure sought to take the Beatles out of their usual photo shoots, and to get a bit experimental. This was never intended to be the album cover, but in early 1966 the Fab 4, particular John and Paul, decided to submit it as the album cover for their upcoming US album release titled "Yesterday and Today"
The Beatles fought very hard for the cover, convincing the President of Capital Records Alan W Livingston that they had to have the Butcher Cover, and would not allow another image. They stated that this was their protest against the Vietnam War, and refused to budge despite their management and record label's concerns.
