L'Osservatore Romano Pays Tribute to the Beatles and Hippie Cult

In an ill-starred attempt to garner more popular appeal, L'Osservatore Romano pays tribute to the figures who were truly important to them when they were actually young.

The December 25 edition of L’Osservatore Romano paid tribute to two new books devoted to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Mark Hayward’s The Beatles: On Camera, Off Guard 1963-69 and The Rolling Stones: On Camera, Off Guard 1963-69 contain photographs-- most of them previously unpublished-- of the bands.

The L’Osservatore Romano column was written by Giuseppe Fiorentino and Gaetano Vallini, who earlier this year commemorated the fortieth anniversary of the hippie film Easy Rider.
