“Raising a Beatle Baby” author Jere Hester published an article in the Jan. 26, 2014 New York Daily News that tackled the Beatles’ phenomenal ability to keep attracting new generations of fans nearly 45 years after the group’s breakup. With the golden anniversary of the British Invasion approaching, Hester wrote,
The hoopla surrounding the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ U.S. arrival doesn’t represent a new wave of Beatlemania as much as resounding proof that for most of us, John, Paul, George and Ringo always have been here, there and everywhere.
The article – which cites evidence of the band’s multi-generational appeal in everything from album sales to viral videos to the experiences of Nirvana great Dave Grohl’s Beatles-loving daughter and other young fans – echoes the themes of “Raising a Beatle Baby,” the story of how Hester and his wife, Theresa Wozunk, shared their love for the Fab Four with their daughter, Ella.
