The big deal with the Beatles

September 13, 2009

Many people who were not born when the Beatles broke up are excited about a new video game that features their music. ("Meet (and Be) the Beatles," Aug. 30.)

I was in high school when the band ruled the airwaves, and as a loyal Beatlemaniac, I studied my share of backward lyrics. But I eventually began to see the limitations of the band's message and members.

Someone once said that "the Beatles were just a band that made it very, very big." His name was John Lennon.

The band's outspoken leader also cautioned people to enjoy their music but not to appreciate it for more than it actually had to offer.
