From a 1969 article “Psychological Effects of Beatlemania”:

"The Beatle Phenomenon. The kind of support found with the Beatles is … remarkable. Their public is a diverse one, composed not only of teenagers, but also of people who are within the older age groups. This is particularly noticeable in the kinds of audience that appear at their public appearances and their films.The gross mass reaction to the Beatles is without social precedent. No artist has ever had such a reception, or for so long a time. No religious leader, politician, general or any other public figure has ever been lionized to such an extent or for so long a period.” 

Wonder what would have happened if Tumblr had been around in the sixties?
