Sgt. Pepper's footnote: Karlheinz Stockhausen passes
[Posted by Dave Haber on Tuesday, 12/18/07 7:34 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

It was announced last week that Karlheinz Stockhausen , one of the most important and controversial postwar composers, passed away on Friday, December 7 at his home in western Germany. He was 79.

So taken were the Beatles by Stockhausen's music that he was included among the Beatle's other heroes and idols on the cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967.

See this page on our sister-site, The Internet Beatles Album, for more about the Sgt. Pepper's cover.
