Mccartney: 'Elvis Influenced Album'

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has confessed THE BEATLES classic album SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND was heavily influenced by ELVIS PRESLEY. The music legend reveals The Beatles wrote the 1967 LP, using the concept of a band, so they would not have to go on tour - an idea they obtained from Presley. MCCartney says, "We had this idea that we'd make a record, and the record itself would go on tour for us. "That came from a story we'd heard about Elvis' Cadillac going on tour. We though that was an amazing idea: He doesn't go on tour, he just sends his Cadillac out. Fantastic!"
