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.
While cataloging books today, I came across this title: Celebrity Mad: Why Otherwise Intelligent People Worship Fame. I figured The Beatles had to be in the book somehow. My look at the index proved fruitful. I quoted meanmistermustard’s post because of the mention of Noel Coward (see pictures 2, 3, and 4 for the reference).
