John Lennon Quote
All that business was awful, it was a fuckin' humiliation. One has to completely humiliate oneself to be what the Beatles were, and that's what I resent. I didn't know, I didn't foresee. It happened bit by bit, gradually, until this complete craziness is surrounding you, and you're doing exactly what you don't want to do with people you can't stand — the people you hated when you were ten.
As quoted in Rolling Stone (7 January 1971), and requoted in The Sociology of Rock by Simon Frith, 1978 ISBN 0094602204
