WTH were they thinking?!!!
The Beatles were sold to us as a squeaky clean music group
Or maybe those of us coming of age in the 1960s just saw it that way. I mean, how corrupt is a song named “Hold Your Hand?” Yup, they were sold to us that way. But in short order, they introduced an unsuspecting public to Satanism, Aleister Crowley, psychedelic drugs, Timothy Leary, and who knows what.
So why does that shock me now?
In my case, it is because now in 2018 the unthinkable has become thinkable. People are asserting with a straight face that royals, government officials, the entertainment industry, and many in power are involved with pedophilia, cannibalism and devil worship.
Suddenly this album cover begins to look like more than the result of musicians and a photographer injecting humor into another boring photo shoot.
And we liked them!
