Are you one of those weird people who prefers the Stones to the Beatles?

Sometimes I swing one way, sometimes the other. A devilish choice they both were so brilliant in their prime.

Re: Don't Let Me Down

I hear great plaudits for the Beatles, but they seemed to just be a light weight girl magnet band to me a step up from the later Bay City Rollers... loads of teeny boppers peeing themselves at the airport.

Not saying the Stones weren't girl magnets too, but they were probably a bit older.

Re: Don't Let Me Down

The Beatles were the most talented musical phenomenon of the modern age.  They were musical geniuses who recreated themselves over and over faster than they could be emulated.  Their music is timeless, technically perfect and just damned awesome.   Seriously, musical taste is subjective but to rate the Beatles as simple girl magnets or in the same universe as the Bay City Rollers is madness!!!  I like all kinds of music of all genres but the Beatles are in a class all their own.

They remained awesome even after they split up.

Classic RD, he'll slaughter you with superlatives!

You two and your endless musical masturbations actually got me thinking: Which one DO I like best? Let's start with the evidence: I have 6 Beatles records (left), and 10 Stones. So on record count Stones win. But what records? The Beatles made some amazing, literally world-changing music, much more influential than the Stones, who always chafed at the bit at being "the other British band". Sgt. Peppers and the White Album changed music forever and and had a huge impact on a generation of kids - myself included.

Love 'em both, but overall I'll give it to the Scousers.
