Albert Hall not happy with lyric.
« on: June 04, 2017, 10:04:17 AM »

This is really pretty good.  Albert Hall wrote to Brian about their objection to their mention on the Pepper album.

Perhaps my understanding of the English language isn't on a par with the Brits, but I NEVER thought JL was saying there were holes in the Albert Hall....the holes were in Blackburn, Lancashire. A number pegged at 4,000 would certainly been enough to fill the Albert Hall, but that's not JL's intent.

Yeah, it was a mysterious line, it didn't say anything negative about the Albert Hall.
