Pop Rock Thursdays: The Beatles




On March 4, 1966 Maureen Cleave, a reporter for the London Evening Standard, interviewed John Lennon.  His comments caused a firestorm for the band.

Cleave wrote, “Experience has sown few seeds of doubt in him: not that his mind is closed, but it's closed round whatever he believes at the time. ‘Christianity will go,’ he said. ‘It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first—rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me.’ He is reading extensively about religion.”
