Understanding The Beatles

The 40th anniversary of Sgt Pepper is upon us - and I know this means next to nothing to a ton of people born after the Summer of Love. My 20- and 30-something friends roll their eyes when I use Beatles metaphors because to them I am just talking about "another band."

I can understand the feeling and until now had no way of explaining why the Beatles were SUCH a huge deal.

THIS piece does it. If you've ever wondered why the old guy in your office gets a tear in his eye when a Beatles tune comes on the radio, THIS piece may shed some light.

Enjoy - or as Sgt Pepper said, "I hope you will enjoy the show."

Although I was born the year after this album released, it had a significant impact on me when I was in junior high and "discovered" the Beatles. Do you remember that silly movie where the Bee-Gees portrayed the Fab Four?

I'm not sure "silly" is the word I'd use to describe it. Try "blasphemous."
