Beatles Hitler Cover
pr-inside reports: SIR PETER BLAKE has revealed ADOLF HITLER is featured on his iconic cover shot for the BEATLES' SGT PEPPER album.

Blake reveals, "If you look at photographs of the out-takes, you can see the Hitler image in the studio. With the crowd behind there was an element of chance about who you can and cannot see, and we weren't quite sure who would be covered in the final shot, Hitler was in fact covered up behind the band."
