37. The Beatles SAVED Rock and Roll

In the mid sixties it was declining into a bunch of sound alike Frankies and Bobbies, with Fabian as an example of the worst. (The author probably doesn't know what 'Doing a Fabian' is, which is taking a face and promoting it, regardless of talent, into stardom.) The Beatles put musicianship, composing, and breadth of interest and feeling into rock and roll. After them, rock and roll song writers could be composers, not just Tin Pan Alley like hacks.

I expect Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to write, "How Elijah Wald Destroyed Folk Music". But Wald is basically a wackademic, and we all know wackademics don't live in the real world, they live in wackademia, where things are the way they are because they're that way in the book.
