The Beatles are a British rock band, active from 1960 to 1970, who were often considered the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in popular music. Despite splitting up officially and for good in 1973, the shadow of the Beatles' influence loomed over the music and culture of the United Kingdom.
As Sam recovers from his night with Joni Newton, Gene pointedly asks, “Was Lucy there? Did she have her diamond with her?” Gene is referring to the widely held belief that the Beatles song, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” is an obscure reference to LSD. Although John Lennon used LSD, he always stated that the song was inspired by a drawing by his son, Julian (LoM Series 1: Episode 4). .
