Backward Glances to 2016

I saved these two images as souvenirs of 2016 - that peculiarly upsetting 12 months we've just lived through. It'll be necessary to click on one, or both of the images for a bigger, better view, or on the link to the original articles. My only quibble with the Sgt Pepper illustration - I can't find astrologer Jonathan Cainer in there.

The Beatles’ iconic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album cover has inspired a tribute to all of the celebrities who died in 2016.

George Michael, Prince, David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, Robert Vaughn, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Leonard Cohen were among the dozens of famous faces featured in Chris Barker’s poignant creation. There are also references to major world events, such as Donald Trump’s presidential election win and Britain’s Brexit vote to leave the European Union:

It's Music Monday.....
