GG: Gould and the Beatles

Hello all,

That bit about Sgt. Pepper was undeniably out of place on this list.  But
how about this?

I remember once checking out a book about GG from my school library. The
book (or at least the part I read) had interviews with GG.  The
interviews, however, didn't seem to be the usual scripted kind that you
find on the videos or in the Reader.  In one section, I think he was asked
about his opinion of the Beatles, and he tried to explain why he didn't
like them.  I seem to remember that he had some difficulty formulating his
objections, as if he was stammering a bit (inasmuch as you can spot
stammering in a printed interview).  Anyway, this was a long time ago and
my memory is not so clear.  Also, I'm no longer at the school so I can't
go find the book again.  Does anyone have any ideas where this might come
from?  How about other places where Gould talks about the Beatles?  The
only other reference I know is where he talks about using noisemakers
during practicing, saying he might put on 'Beatles records, whatever..'
