Quote of the Day (Paul McCartney, on the Beatles and the Writing of History)

"All the legendary stories that got created just aren't true. I just saw some Beatles program the other night, and in the first five minutes were four mistakes. This is why we don't know who Shakespeare was or what really happened at the Battle of Hastings."—Paul McCartney, quoted by Brian Hiatt, “Yesterday and Today,” Rolling Stone, March 1, 2012
