The Beatles Are Responsible For The American Drug Culture.
At least I remember my dad spewing those words out, circa 1980.

I didn't know a whole lot about the Beatles at that time, but I was sure they couldn't have been all that bad. But of more interest to me was that my dad (who otherwise was kind of a pop culture fuddy dudd) knew who the Beatles were, and more importantly was aware of them at the height of their popularity.

Anyway, that's what I remember.

Thoughts? Questions? Comments? Jokes?

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

They do catch a lions share of the blame. The Beat authors do too. It was going to happen regardless but we have to have somebody to blame it seems.

The Beatles were only mirroring what was happening anyway.

Nah, it's Albert Hofmann's fault. Hell, the Beatles are his fault too. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Nah, the drugs are responsible for the Beatles.

If so, Mozart is responsible for far, far worse...

Mozart is certainly responsible for port and cigars in the drawing room. Bowing
