Hard to imagine, but back in the day the criticism of the Beatles was withering.
Who said this? "Drinking Dom Perignon '53 above 38 degrees is as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs."

Noel Coward is on record criticising The Beatles, however this may have something to do with Noel requesting to meet all 4 but only Paul went as John, George and Ringo couldnt be bothered.
A perfect example of Paul's acceptance of the ethical boundaries of show business came when the Beatles were appearing in Rome in 1965. Epstein told them all that Noel Coward, staying in the same hotel, would like to meet them. Paul recalls that the other three sounded bored by the prospect and suggested they all pretended they were not in. But Paul thought: 'We can't snub Noel Coward! He's two flights downstairs and he's asked to meet us! He's the grand old dame of British show business and we're the new young things.' So Paul went alone to meet him.

I was always amused by William F. Buckley's hyperbolic attack on Beatles music (just google it.) If he was truly that horrified, how would he have reacted to the Rolling Stones or the Animals?
