Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band may be a record you’ve personally listened to and enjoyed, but Keith Richards would like you to know it’s something he didn’t like one bit, nuh-uh, recently telling Esquire he thought the album was “a mishmash of rubbish.”
But 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 shit, so can we.”
Wow, “a load of shit.” It sure sounds like Richards has strong musical preferences, ones that may differ your own.
Perhaps even by quite a lot!
