Killers and Oasis among groups to cover Sgt. Pepper's album

The Cleveland Leader: "'It was 40 years ago today, Sgt Pepper taught the band to play,' that is how the new tribute of classic Beatles album should start off as Oasis, The Killers, Razorlite, James Morrison, The Fratellis and Travis plan on doing a tribute to the Beatles 1967 classic. Lesley Douglas of BBC said: 'This will be not only a unique radio event, but a very special musical moment.'The range and quality of artists involved ensure that this will be a fitting tribute to one of the great albums of all time.' The bands have not decided who will do which songs. The songs will air on BBC 2 on June 2nd, 40 years after the album hit the shelves for the first time. No word on if the recording will be released, but if all goes well recording it don't be suprised to see it on iTunes come July."
