There is a lot of renewed interest in the Beatles because of the CD releases, and this “Twenty Years Ago for Sgt. Pepper,” but there will always be periods when the Beatles sell again. In the Seventies, there was a period, and now another one in the Eighties. I think it happens with each generation. I saw it happen with my own boy. I didn’t tell him anything about the Beatles, and then one day he suddenly said, “Hey, Dad, can you show me the piano riff to ‘Bulldog’?”
I thought, “How the hell did he even hear such an obscure tune?” And then I realized that when all kids get to be five and six, they watch Yellow Submarine. As they get older, they somehow discover the Beatles. It has an everlasting quality.
