Salty quote for the day

From the loquacious and boundlessly self-assured William F. Buckley Jr:

The Beatles are not merely awful. They are so unbelievably horrible, so appallingly unmusical, so dogmatically insensitive to the magic of the art, that they qualify as crowned heads of antimusic.

He seems to have made his point.

It would be interesting to know the context in which this quote was used. Obviously he didn't care for the Beatles, but I wonder if he was trying to make a point about rock music in general, or if his distaste was simply with the Beatles. In any case, he was anything but unclear about how he felt. Wow.
