Ray Davies - Unreliable Narrator!

I'm reading Ray Davies book "Americana" now.  Just a few chapters in, and I'm really enjoying it. But then I come to this, and I think: "Really Ray?!

"The Beatles were a cross between the Three Stooges and the boy next door."

This morning I do a quick Google search and find that Ray Davies reviewed the Beatles "Revolver" in August 1966. (He didn't like it so much!).

I now realize I am reading a book written by one of the great British r&r songwriters, with a great catalog of memorable, essential songs, but our dear Mr. Davies is what we would call in the writing biz an "unreliable narrator!"
