I’ve been watching The Beatles Anthology. It is quite a unique journey. I’ve just hit the 4th and 5th episodes, around the Rubber Soul/Revolver era.
In it, The Beatles speak about the influence that Drugs had on their music.
You can argue the effect that those drugs have on some people, but what you can’t argue is the effect that those drugs had on The Beatles. After they started taking drugs, via Bob Dylan, they made their most groundbreaking music. It changed modern music and it changed the world.
Check out the video below. At around the 40 second mark George hits upon some interesting points to ponder.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91C9h_Yd_3o]
Whether you agree or find it all quite irresponsible, the fact is that the world is richer because of the The Beatles experimentation with drugs.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LwyCHhbxOM]
