Beatles vs. Stones

Which do you prefer?

I'd have to go with the Rolling Stones although I do love Revolver.

And you?



I agree Aftermath may be an artistic breakthrough because they wrote all the songs. But I see it as just a transition to much better songs ahead. The earlier albums had many great performances that were cover songs, with some originals too.

I'm a Kinks fan from the British Invasion bands but between the 2, I would go Beatles all day and all of the night. 


You dedicated follower of fashion, you.

Nowadays it's a little too easy to forget that the UK had so many great bands back then.

The Beatles, the Stones, the Animals, the Who, the Hollies, the Kinks, the Yardbirds, Herman's Hermits, the Incredible String Band, the Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Cream etc.


At the very least they must have all been giving each other plenty to think about.

The British Invasion was probably the only good thing that came out of the JFK assassination.

hmmmmm...let's see, how do you like your cheeseburger? onions? pickles? tomatos? Better yet, Cheeseburgers or chop suey? Tacos or hot dogs? Why do these ramblings continue on and elicit so many responses? The Beatles were beat/rock, Stones initially blues/rock. Apples and oranges. Both unbelievably good. By the way Phil59, the Beatles first U.S. single was "Please Please Me" b/w "Ask Me Why", July '63 on VJ records #498. STOP! Let's get back to JBL vs. KLH.

P.S. bigtwin what are you smokin'? I'd love to try it. Hope your first post in this misguided adventure was sarsacm. Again, if not, what are you smokin'??  AB

 OOPS! Sorry bigtwin, the first comment I was referring to was from onhwy61, not yours. Guess I'd better check on what I'm smokin'!
