"This is largely an appeal to the feminine heart. The heart of a young girl who worships love and the goddess of love and the heroes of love. And this plays the dominant part of her life. So the vast majority of the fans are girls who come
there to worship at the shrine of the goddess or the young god hero as they did in the ancient past."
"I've seen this with the most dramatic intensity with The Beatles playing to two or three thousand young girls in Manchester. Apart from another journalist, I was the only male in the audience. And I've never experienced anything like it in myself. If I were confronted with 10,000 Loch Ness monsters, I wouldn't be so impressed by this whistling and wailing and possession of the soul of these young girls."
