A recreation of the iconic 1967 Beatles album cover for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band that replaces the original subjects of the collage with people we lost in 2016 has been making the rounds on the internet. The photo-shopped image, which has been updated to include deaths as recent as Dec. 12th, features over 40 artists, musicians, athletes and other celebrities who passed away this year.
Sgt Pepper Album Cover Tribute 2016
It was a year of many great losses for everyone on the planet. From heroes such as Muhammad Ali and John Glenn to musicians Prince and Leonard Cohen, many a legend has left us. Chris actually updated the image a few times, the last update to include his favorite weatherman, Ian McCaskill, who just passed away on December 12th. Even Walnut the Whippet (misidentified in the key as a Greyhound) made the cover.
In addition to the deceased personalities, the image hilariously points out other losses such as Toblerone’s new chocolate bar shape, Brexit, America’s President Elect Trump, India’s 1000 rupee note, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and even the Leicester City Football Club.
I wonder what Christhebarker has up his sleeve for 2017? This is a hard one to top.
May they all Rest In Peace.
