" On 4 November 1963, Bob Dylan was exposed as a fraud by NEWSWEEK magazine." " In March 1966, in a paragraph buried in an article in the EVENING STANDARD, John Lennon remarks casually that his band are 'more popular than Jesus now.' The Beatle will also dismiss the Christ's disciples as 'thick and ordinary.' He won't mention anyone named Judas....men in bowler hats still march regimentally to their City offices each morning. The BBC still sounds like a spoof of a still-vigorous class system. Millions on the islands still believe, like Lennon and his Beatles, that everything modern in the 20th century has come from America." "Britain in the middle of the 60s is a vastly less conservative country than America, more attuned to political dissent, more socially liberal, yet oddly, persistently hidebound. Modern is good; money is tainted. America is envied and admired; "American" is an object of suspicion. The global phenomenon surrounding the Beatles is a source of bemused national pride and faint derision." "Even the killing of John Kennedy, that glimpse into encroaching darkness, has not wrenched every consciousness. The myth of a youth rebellion, '56 to '66, will be applied retrospectively,but in the cities and towns and spreading suburbs of the republic the distinguishing mark of a younger generation is dioposable income, not dissent."
