"They ruined rock and roll. They put Motown out of business. So I never bought a new record ever until punk came out. THE BEATLES led to the MONKEES. And it was a little hard hearing Lennon sing about 'No Possessions' when he was living in the Dakota." Filmmaker JOHN WATERS hates The Beatles.

I now throw John Waters in with Roger Daltry as people I no longer respect because they don't get the Beatles. Where the F would The Who be had the Beatles not broken the American market wide open?NONE of the other British muscicians could open that door by them selfs or as a group. They should kneel down and praise the Beatles.Kevin

"So I never bought a new record ever until punk came out"… punk was all about rough edged kids from (usually) impoverished backgrounds playing the heck out of their music until someone 'discovered' their raw talent. Sound like anyone we know? The Beatles payed their dues playing Motown music night after night wearing leather jackets for years before Brian Epstein and George Martin helped them to reach a wider audience. As for the Motown and the music business, Motown has NEVER been dead, people still love it as much as the Beatles did!
