Be Here Now (Oasis) Easter Egg - Cover Eggs

On the front cover, the clock on the left is the same as the CD's front. Also, if you look at the bottom, at the arc in the ground made of stones (start with the stone in the arc closest to the bottom ) go up 5 stones and you can see a cigarette butt in the ground, probally from Liam, cuz he's the closest. The house in the background is Allen's house (drummer), if I remember right.

There are loads more eggs on the cover. The hotel was a hang out of Keith Moon, the drummer from the Who. The TV is a tribute to the film "Tommy" also by the Who. The Rolls Royce in the Pool is the same one that John Lennon used to own in the late 60's, and has the same reg plate as the black van on the cover of 'Abbey Road'. The parking meter in the pool is a tribute to the the Betales song "Lovely Rita" (listen to the track, you'll know why). The Clock has something to do with the film 'A Hard Days Night' by the beatles. There are loads more, if anyone knows of them let me know.

Also, if you take a look at the cd-label. The number 9 (or IX) is replaced with an Oasis-logo. If you then take a look at the back of cover, you'll discover that no. 9 on the album is... Be Here Now (the song with the same name as the album). Also, if it was in the evening (9 pm.) it would be 21.00 in military time, and the album was released on the 21st of August...

Also the car in the pool has the same registration plate as one of the cars on the 'Beatles' Abbey Road Album cover.

The house on the front cover is The Stocks Hotel, Albury, Hertfordshire. It used to be a family home, then Hugh Hefner trained (?) bunny girls there. It's now a hotel/golf club.

Also, on the cover and sleeve, a "calender box" features the day: Thursday 21 August. On Thursday the 21st of August, 1997 the album itself ("Be Here Now") was released in most countries. It is also interesting to note that in some shots in the sleeve, obviously taken before the release date was announced, the "calender box" featured a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT DATE.

On the subject of Beatles' references on the cover, there's also references to Beatles songs in the songs on Be Here Now. In "D'You Know What I Mean", they mention "The Fool on the Hill" and "I Feel Fine", and in "My Big Mouth" they mention "The Long and Winding Road". Not really eggs, but I thought it was cool.

didn't anyone of you realize the ball shaped TV next to where guigsy is climbing up from the pool? take a look at the TV n u'll see the cover photo in it and the clock... the hands were removed... look in the sleeve where alan white is photographed... there's hands on the clock. and the 'pay-when-u-park' pole in the pool was actually moved outside the doors of the main building in the big photo on the last page of the sleeve

fireandskill1971@aol.com - sorry you are wrong there, brian jones did not drive a roller into his pool, he was swimming when he died. It is said he was killed by a builder who was working on his house at the time. If you are interested in Brian Jones you may want to read a book called 'Who Killed Christopher Robin ' The whole Rolls Royce in the pool is porbably a refernece tyo Keith Moon from the Who, who it was said drove one into a pond at a party.

The car in the swimming pool on the cover of 'Be Here Now' is a tribute to dead Rolling Stone Brian Jones, who drove his Rolls Royce into the swimming pool of his Cotchford Farm home while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
