Thats the word from writer Bob Spitz, who wrote The Beatles: The Biography (Back Bay Books), which comes out in paperback on Monday (Oct.9) the same day as John Lennons birthday.
Spitz says that while hes had BeatleMania for the greater part of his life, he didnt always feel love for the four kids from Liverpool.
Says Spitz: I was 13 when I first saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. When I went to school the next day I confidently proclaimed that they were horrible, worthless, and would be over in a heartbeat.
He adds, Upon hearing my opinion some bullies beat me up in the name of the Beatles. Thats when I came to my senses and began my affair with the greatest musicians ever.
