Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band-The Movie

It was thirty years ago today that Sgt. Pepper, the movie, with the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton was released and quickly became one of the worst movies of all time, and I SAW IT. I should have known better than to think anyone other than the Beatles themselves could make this film. At the time though, the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton were on top of the musical world. Most of the musical performances were solid. Some of it outstanding, like Aerosmith and their version of "Come Together," and Billy Preston performing "Get Back." Then you have performances like Steve Martin doing "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" that just make you cringe. The acting and storyline, however, was down right lame.

Below are the Bee Gees and Frampton performing the opening number and below that is the movie trailer.
