The church compliments the legendary band on the 40th anniversary of their breakup.
Vatican City (WiredPRNews.com) – The Vatican has changed its tune with regards to the Beatles, paying tribute to the band in commenoration of the 40th anniversary of their breakup. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano published two articles about the band in its weekend editions.
The paper is quoted by the AP as stating of the Fab Four, “It’s true, they took drugs; swept up by their success, they lived dissolute and uninhibited lives… They even said they were more famous than Jesus… But, listening to their songs, all of this seems distant and meaningless. Their beautiful melodies, which changed forever pop music and still give us emotions, live on like precious jewels.”
L’Osservatore is further quoted as regarding the Beatles as “the longest-lasting, most consistent and representative phenomenon in the history of pop music.”
