All I Want Is The Truth

Now that we're over 40 years removed from the beginning of the phenomenon that was (and is) The Beatles (which occurred a decade before I was even born), and with two gone for good and the other two making "memory music," we would serve ourselves well (as music lovers who want to continue the appreciation into future generations) if we shared with our kids not only the music, but our experiences with The Beatles. Can you imagine hearing Revolver again for the first time? It's a once in a lifetime experience and something for which I envy my kids. It's not just the music. It's an entire experience that, for me, was like no other. It's unlikely we'll ever see another band like them that had such a musical and historical impact, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

This article prompted this post. It's a quick read on John Lennon and his ongoing impact. How long will he/they stay relevant? Is he/are they still relevant? It's a good read.
