First National Exposure for The Beatles

In February 1963 the Evening Star published an article about The Beatles. This was the first time they received national exposure.

The article was written by Maureen Cleave who would become one of the most influential rock journalists, famous for her interviews with The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and of course The Beatles.

It was Maureen Cleave who published in 1966 the interview with John Lennon where he claimed "the Beatles were bigger than Jesus".

Some people also think that Maureen Cleave was the inspiration for Norwegian Wood, although John Lennon says he doesn't remember about whom he wrote it.
