Close examination of a newly-discovered photograph reveals Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to be none other than super pop group, the Beatles. The photograph was discovered among letters written by the late former Beatle John Lennon in a storage locker registered to his name. Until now, the Pepper band was thought to have produced only one album -- albeit a great one -- and then vanish into rock obscurity.

"We've had our suspicions for years," said rock critic Greil Marcus, "but this is the smoking gun."

Sir Paul McCartney was reached at his Kensington estate. "Remember, this was the age of the put-on," he said. "We were just trying to have a little fun." He added, "Sorry we hurt your field, mister."
