Far Out Magazine recently ran their attempt to cobble together the evidence of The Beatles being “disciples” of The Prophet of the Lovely Star. Whilst i believe that the evidence for that level of devotion isn’t presented, I think they reiterate the already familiar case for some of the Beatles – likely Paul McCartney and John Lennon being acquainted with Crowley and some of his philosophy. Hell, a fairly recent interview with McCartney had him averring his belif in magic – and he went out of his way to stipulate “with a k.” And leave us not forgot that the original cover art of Sgt. Pepper was supposed to feature two photographs of Crowley, and two life-sized, stand ups were prepared and brought to the photo shoot (I read somewhere!)
So – amuse yrselves:
P.S. The Beatles were a Rock ‘n’ Roll revival band from Liverpool England, who went pop, helped create “Rock” as a genre (i.e. white guys playing Rock ‘n’ Roll instruments performing songs influenced by many different genres), who achieved unprecedented popularity and influence over youth culture – and an iron-clad lock on the imaginations of many who were youths during the band’s ascendency. Just like the 1975. Just a long time ago.
