The Tragic Story Of Harry Nilsson, The Beatles' Favorite 'Group'

Back in the late 1960s, a line from one of the Beatles printed in the press changed the world. John Lennon found this out when in March 1966, just prior to the band's final American tour, he told London Evening Standard journalist Maureen Cleave: "We're more popular than Jesus now." According to Britannica, the line, which met with little response from British readers, caused a storm of controversy in the U.S. with its republication in the teen magazine Datebook that July, leading to the burning of Beatles merchandise by outraged Christians and the potential cancellation of the tour.
