Great article, DN...

I listened to Sgt. Peppers again tonight.

What a tremendous force the Beatles were...Just makes me shake my
head...they were Perfection...
After all these years, they still sound fresh and new...and unique...

I don't think there's ever been anything like them, nor will there ever be
anything like them again.

The Beatles got me started on my journey, they were my guru's. Although I've
grown in new directions, and I listen to so much more stuff now, they are
still the touchstone of everything I've ever learned musically.

My Father dismissed them as noise at first...long haired yea yea yea music.
But even he, a career Marine, came around to their genius before he died.

And I'll never forget turning my niece, who at the time thought the Back
Street Boys, or whatever they were, were better than the Beatles, onto them one
night, playing cuts from Pepper, and Rubber Soul, Revolver, Abbey Road, and
the White Album...turning her onto revolution #9 (a precursor of rap?)...and
I'll always remember the look on her face as she got it...and said...Those guys
are a LOT BETTER than the backstreet boys...
