The BeatlesSgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band routinely shows up on lists of the, like, most totally, like, awesome albums evarrrr — but according to Keith Richards, the record is pants.

Quoth Keef in an Esquire chat:   “There’s not a lot of roots in that music.  I think they got carried away.  Why not?  If you’re the Beatles in the 60s, you just get carried away — you forget what it is you wanted to do.  You’re starting to do Sgt. Pepper.  Some people think it’s a genius album, but I think it’s a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like Satanic Majesties —’Oh, if you can make a load of s**t, so can we.’”

According to the legendary Stones-man, “The Beatles sounded great when they were the Beatles.”

Keith Richards, ladies and gentlemen.

Love, Dr. Scott James
