Introduction

2. Study Sources A, B, C Does the evidence of Source C support the evidence in Sources A and B about the effects of pop music in the 1960s? Explain your answer. Source C is a personal account written by Paul McCartney in 1984 to inform people about the behaviour of fans in the 1960's The source discusses how fans in the 1960's were different to fans today "who are a little more reserved" but he explains that the supporters were "never as crazy as they used to say it was". Source C supports Source A because they both talk about the positive impact of The Beatles on young people. In Source A Joanna Lumley describes The Beatles as "cool, hip, smart, lippy and funny". Lumley is a young person at the time she is recollecting whilst Paul McCartney describes the fans as being "a bunch of kids". ...read more.

Middle

The evidence Source A provides about the impact of pop music can be effected because of its of its origins. It is a personal account of a young fan, clearly infatuated with The Beatles written to discuss the impact of the band 30 years after the event took place meaning that there is a possibility that there are flaws to the story and the account could be exaggerated therefore we can not be completely clear of the effects of pop music. Source C supports Source B because they both refer to the effects of concerts. Source B refers to a Rolling Stones concert at the Mad Mod Ball at Wembley in 1964 whilst Source C focuses on Beatles fans at a concert. Sources C and B agree because they both talk about the negative effects of pop music in the 1960's. ...read more.

Conclusion

Source C and B indicate the difference between The Beatles and The Rolling Stones fans. The sources support the belief that The Rolling Stones had an edgier persona then The Beatles whose boy-next-door image that tended to be more mainstream. The Stones fans were a "screaming mob" leaving the band terrified as they left the stage whilst The Beatles fans were not quite as hysterical and McCartney claims, "it was never as bad as they use to say it was". Sources C and A support each other greatly as they both talk about the positive effects of pop music had in the 1960's however they do not completely agree as Source C also talks about the negative effects of pop music. Source C and B also agree because they both talk about the negative effects of pop music although they do not completely agree as Source C also talks about how you could have a positive relationship with fans.
