It’s almost to good to be true, but lo and behold — My favorite band of all time were fans of my favorite TV show of all time!
As evidenced in this extremely rare photo from late 1966 – Paul is clearly giving the Vulcan Peace Sign as John looks on from their hotel window! I bet Trek was a huge factor in their creative drives that led to Sgt. Pepper the following year! Wow! Who’da thunk it???!
And by the way, if you haven’t noticed today’s date, better read the following words backward: LOOF LIRPA ! 😉 Gotcha! (This was hard to Photoshop!)
I came across this a while back, and since today would have been the 75th birthday of John Lennon, it seems the right day to present it! I think Spock would have grokked The Beatles! What a pleasure to have two of my great joys in the same artistic universe! Unfortunately, I do not know the artist, and as you can see, all the original prints of this were sold out — but at least I have this image! 🙂 (To see more Beatle-flavored Trek stuff, see here, here, here, here, here, and here.
I don’t know if it’s the haircut, neat shirt and ties, or the slightly innocent vibe he gives off in these, but Leonard looks like he could be the 5th Beatle here! Nice!
I’m just in a silly mood tonight, kids…
With Humble Apologies to Ringo; You know I love you! xo
Well Kids, I was thinking about the greatest rock n’ roll band ever the other day and found myself combining my two favorite 60’s pop icons again…
Here’s the original!

Where has time gone? Still an energizing and happy moment… 😀
You can see a video here:
I’m such a geek, I’m wearing my Beatle T-shirt today 🙂 The design on it is this…(By Al Hirshfeld). Sending out love to Paul and Ringo, and Heavenly Hellos to George and John! Congrats boys, you passed the audition! 😉
I guess I’m still in Beatle mode… Note George’s pointed ear, and John makes a great Captain!
