A world without The Bloody Beatles?


Recommended Posts

Interesting piece by Paul Morley in The Observer asking if anybody apart from Oasis would notice if The Bloody Beatles hadn't actually have existed.


"Many are convinced that what the Beatles started has made the world a better place. I've never been convinced, not because of their music, but because of the docile, distracting culture of acceptance, habit, reverence and wistfulness that has been erected around the music and the history that sprang from it."


"If there were no Beatles, would it seem achingly obvious that something was missing, even though we couldn't quite explain it, a palpable hole in space and time, a conspicuous lack of another not necessarily better, not necessarily worse reality? Would we still be waiting for something to happen?"




As ever, what say you?
