The Beatles changed The Flaming Lips' frontman's life.
Wayne Coyne grew up in a hectic but happy household in Oklahoma. He was the second youngest of six children.
"They were always listening to music, always taking drugs, riding motorcycles, going to jail," he says of his older siblings. "All kinds of hedonistic and very happy things were happening.
I've always associated heavy drug music and happiness togetherWayne Coyne
"I've always associated heavy drug music and happiness together because of the way my family was as I was growing up."
Coyne recalls the smell of incense and pot smoke that drifted through his brothers' pitch black bedroom.
But even more powerful is his memory of The Beatles' 'A Day in the Life' playing from their broken 8-track player.
"Every layer you go to is fascinating," he says of the song.
"Not all music is like that. Some music you'd start to consider it and go, 'Oh, well, that's kinda cheap'. But Beatles music would never do that to us.
"It's a little bit like an abstract painting or something.
"It's giving you an illusion of what's happening and then, when you break it down, that's not really what's happening. It's all these bits that are giving you this impression."
