That time in 1987 when The B-52’s, Allen Ginsberg, Nile Rodgers, and David Byrne did an ad for AMFAR

Around the time it became fashionable for music and political and social causes to fit neatly within each other’s desires to spread the good word, The B-52s produced an incredible public service announcement for AMFAR (The Foundation For AIDS Research) with a little help from their friends back in 1987, recreating The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s album cover.

Along with the group, you’ll see Korean video artist Nam Jun Paik, Allen Ginsberg, Nile Rodgers, ABC’s David Yarritu, David Byrne and then-wife Adelle Lutz, Quentin Crisp and many others.
