Okay, being the Sports Editor of The Herald (wait, are you still the Sports Editor?) I wouldn’t expect you to have any knowledge of music.
But being a human being, and a grown-ass man at that, I reckon if you’re going to invoke the name of the greatest band in history, you should at least get their name right.
THE Swinging Sixties was a decade of care-free attitudes, rampant drug abuse, the emergence of a Liverpool musical group called The Beetles …
Really, Robson? The BEETLES? As in instects of the order Coleoptera? Okay, granted, they were almost called The Beetles in tribute to Buddy Holly’s band, The Crickets, but it was changed to Beatles. Get it? “Beat”. “Beatles”.
So, so very sad.
