Thanks for the ink to this article. Well, the Guardian always has high quality articles.
All the best
The Fab Four of Cley
🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Great article…they are woven in our fabric and will never go away. Their influence keeps coming back.
it is an amazing story- its been over 50 years now- and they are still here- i go to the bookstore tomorrow and i bet there will be 5-6 mags with the boys on the cover.
Yes I have already seen a couple this past week. Bailey’s friends…19-25 year olds have watched it and into the Beatles. I don’t see this happening with anyone else.
Every generation seems to get it–we were the in the first post- Beatles generation that caught on.
I’ve seen the Beatles real hot 3 times in the past 25 years…Anthology, The 1 Greatest hits album/Rock Band Game…and now.
I think it was in Rob Sheffield’s book and I tend to agree with him – the ‘coldest’ time for The Beatles was the late 70’s early 80’s period..
The eighties part I do remember. It wasn’t the most popular thing being a Beatles fan when new wave hit…and punk in the seventies.
I snagged a 6-month free Disney Plus subscription when I bought my new phone. God is Good. I just finished part 1 last night. Truly magic to be privileged enough to sit in on those sessions, the good, the bad, and the ugly of them. Something I want to throw out there from what I’ve seen so far: you know how Yoko is attached at the hip to John? I described her to my son as a stain on the wall of the room, always unsightly, always present. I am wondering if George had his Hare Krishna follower friends sitting over to the side in the first part of this as a pointed message to John of how the other 3 feel having Yoko *always there*. Thoughts?
p.s. The author of the Guardian article is right: they shall never grow old.
A well written article, and the author is spot on. Thanks for posting this. I’ve watched part 1 and a bit of part 2 and will finish it soon. So, who will be the next Beatles of this generation? I can’t imagine any band out there that could carry that weight or have that much talent.
There will never be another- I envy you- you lived through it I was too young…
I remember when, on his radio show, Larry King said that the Beatles were a once in a lifetime phenomenon. The phone in comments from listeners across the age spectrum, were mostly in agreement.
