Two more Beatles anniversaries!

On this day in 1967, June 1, the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in the U.K. It was released in the U.S. the following day.

Two years later, on June 1, 1969, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Tommy Smothers, Petula Clark, a rabbi, a group of Hari Krishnas, Derek Talyor, Timothy Leary, and a whole bunch of folks John and Yoko probably didn't know from Adam and Eve, got together during the Lennons' Montreal bed-in for peace and recorded "Give Peace a Chance." This was the first single from the Plastic Ono Band, whose lineup consisted of John, Yoko, and whoever happened to be in the room at the time.

"All we saying is give peace a chance."

(The song was credited to Lennon and McCartney, though Paul did not help John wirte it. John later admitted it deserved a Lennon and Ono credit instead.)
