The Beatles broke up?!

Today I had to deliver news to my kids that no parent wants to have to say……

Oh wait, I meant that no parent in 1970 wants to say.

“The Beatles broke up.”

A Paul McCartney song came on the radio this morning and my youngest son said, “That doesn’t really sound like the Beatles.”

So I said, “No, that’s just Paul McCartney. After they broke up, they all went on to other bands and solo careers.”

The look of horror and shock on my children’s faces were awful.  “The Beatles broke up?!!!!”  They were extremely angry.

I figured this wasn’t the time to tell them that only 2 are still alive. I think I’ll wait for that news until they’re at least 21.
