    CBS Interview: "Paul McCartney also talked about the influences of the Beatles album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," saying it "owes a lot to drugs, to pot" - and to a circus poster. "


    In other news, it was found that boiling water causes burns if touched.

    So was Rubber Soul (Pot) & Revolver (LSD). Is he promoting a new CD, that's usually when these stories come out.

    Some record executive just released a bunch of interviews that he had on tape. It was more than just the beatles. Dylan, Bo Didlie, and, I think, Hendrix.

    Interesting. Brian Wilson said that he wanted Pet Sounds to be better than Rubber Soul. Dueling influences.
