In late 1966 Rolling Stone Brian Jones started a joke which started the whole world crying. Most people blame Anita Pallenberg for this lapse of taste, but I think it is possible that anti-Nazi Brian may have been inspired in his merry mayhem by an earlier joke photo of his friends, the Beatles.
The Beatles' infamous butcher cover. This 'amusing' album cover was actually produced and then recalled. Paul's smirk makes this picture!
