The artwork of Genesis’ 3×3 EP in 1982 was a reference to the Twist And Shout EP. The liner notes were also written by Tony Barrow.

I’m a huge fan of Emmylou Harris (a few folk.on here are) so it’s great to read of her love for the Beatles.
I fell in love with the Beatles along with everyone else, shortly after the assassination of JFK. In America, it was like the end of innocence, a terrible, horrifying thing. There was a blackness, a cloud over everyone. So when the Beatles came along with their great haircuts and joyful music, it was like the clouds parted, the sun came out and it was all right to be happy and feel innocence again.
I didn’t want my parents to know that I loved the Beatles because I’d turned 18 and they thought I was beyond that teenage stuff. I remember buying a Beatles magazine and hiding it. Steve Earle has a wonderful theory that the Beatles’ music got deeper and darker because the seriousness of Bob Dylan’s lyrics made them think: “We’re not teenagers any more.” I’m sure the drugs had something to do with it.
A few years ago, I was playing in Dallas and visited the museum in the building from where Kennedy was shot. It was like a Greek tragedy, this young president with this beautiful wife and young children and the feeling of optimism for the future … It hit me all over again and I just wept.
For some reason I’m not being allowed to paste the source link. It’s from ‘The Guardian’.
