BEATLES!

Some of you already mention them; So now let's take it to the next step... Beatles or the Stones?

P.S. You already know my answer.

"Never trust anyone who doesn't like the Beatles" is an adage I tried to live my life by...
But f*ck me...Elvis Is pretty damn cool too. Ain't he?

Like Trader Vic once said, "Anybody that doesn't like The Beatles is a dirty stinker".

Or something like that.

The Beatles went around picking up classic yet unused tunes the way early explorers would discover plants and animals unknown to Europeans. The right band at the right time. Elvis was more of a force of nature - couldn't write a note himself but hotwired the world to a more 'pelvic' way of thinking. Both were essential to the way music was shaped forever for good or ill.

Incidentally, my father-in-law went to school with Paul McCartney and George Harrison. He's got a great old photo of all the kids lined up, and you can pick out Paul & George a mile off.

Unfortunately it's about 3 foot long and I don't have a scanner. I'm sure the close-ups have been used a million times, though. (?) Anyway, I'll try to get someone to scan bit's of it as it's pretty funny. My Mother-in-law was a regular at the Cavern and saw the Beatles loads of times. She wishes she'd brought a camera along!

On my side of the family, my mum invited her sisters down to London back in the 60's and were walking through Picadilly Circus when a mini (very small car) stopped at the traffic lights. The Beatles were inside. No doubt the requisite screams & fainting fits soon followed.

kind of relevant to the thread. Not a bad find for $50.

If I could only listen to one or the other I'd go Beatles. But, the Revillos (Rezillos) are (were) great! You Cali folks are lucky, I heard they may re-form and do a few shows over that way. Don't miss'em!

Elvis was the first wigger, and I mean that in the best possible way. He altered the music scene, almost single handedly, taking it from a derivative sub-genre to music for all races. Kinda like a reverse Jackie Robinson.

The Beatles were as much the role models for a generation as they were rock stars. They became a social movement at the time.

Both Elvis and the Beatles were epic.

I think more people identified in a personal way with the Fab Four.

I like both, but I play my Beatles records more than my Elvis records.
