50 years ago The Beatles split up! Deep Purple combines a Beatles song with Beethoven's 7th Symphony. Genesis has a rather funny song about a rather tragic event. The Golden Earrings make it even worse: they sing about the atomic bomb! And Porcupine Tree joins them. Van der Graaf Generator loses all hope, while Rush has a nice 7/8 and King Crimson criticizes all kinds of dumb talk. Magma's lyrics are incomprehensible anyhow and Gershon Kingsley only does "Hey hey"
Symfo at RTV Arnhem, next Sunday at 8 pm MET (UTC+2)
