Despite their apparent appointment as Purveyors of Rock and Roll to the Crown, the Beatles have taken the whole thing in stride. Said Beatle John Lennon to the lords and ladies at the command performance: "People in the cheaper seats clap your hands, the rest of you just rattle your jewelry." It was not only their good looks and wonderfully unique music that made them so popular with the young ladies (and men too!). It was their witty charm that was reflected in the quote from the Royal Command Performance. Here is part of what was said at LaGuardia airport on February 7, 1964: "Will you sing for us?" someone asked. "We need money first," John Lenin shot back. "What's
your message for American teenagers?" "Our message is...buy some more Beatle records," returned Paul McCartney. "What about the movement in Detroit to stamp out the Beatles?" "We're starting a ovement to stamp out Detroit." "Do you hope to take anything home with you?" "Rockefeller Center." "What do you think of Beethoven?" "I love him," said Ringo Starr. "Especially his poems." "Don't you guys ever get a haircut?" "I just got one yesterday," retorted George Harrison. Added Ringo: "You should have seen him the day before." There's a little bit of Beatle history. One could say that they did not just come out of nowhere , like many people believe. It took hard, diligent work to go where they went. Because of this "Came out of nowhere to steal the hearts of young girls" quote that was often used in the 1960's, many psychiatrists felt the need to examine further. Anthony Corbett, a noted English psychologist praised the Beatles as having provided "a desperately needed release for the inhibitions which exist in all of us."2

Dixon Scott of the London Daily Mirror interviewed a well-known psychiatrist (unnamed because of medical ethics) in an attempt to get to the root of Beatlemania. "We are all chaotic and mixed up inside," the psychiatrist told Scott. "We are anxious to have a greater freedom to live. We have a greater feeling of the need to express ourselves...in the past we have been controlled automatons...but you cannot hold nature back forever. All the parts in use had to seek an outlet and rhythm is one of these outlets...then along came the Beatles with their fresh beat and fresh innocence." The psychiatrist then came to the crux of the problem: "A revolution is taking place," he said. "It amounts to freedom with a sense of responsibility and honesty.
