    I am a Beatles worshiper. I live and breathe The Beatles and Muhammad Ali. That room is in Johns House when he lived in Liverpool ( I might be wrong). Even today The Beatles bring millions of s into Liverpool in tourism every year.
    The Abbey Road Zebra Crossing gets more visitors per year than Most very famous buildings and places. Abbey Road Crossing has Official Protected Status.

    I hate it when some millennial squirt fakes the colours an old mono photo. Leave the damn thing as it was intended to be, black and white.

    Indeed.

    Ive found however a trend among Millenials to try and put down, downgrade and dismiss the Beatles, and underplay their influence, which pisses me off.

    There's a moronic argument that Elvis was greater than the Beatles, or the Stones were greater than the Beatles. Both are facile, ignorant arguments that fail to understand the era. In both cases its apples and pears.

    Elvis was possible the worlds best pop crooner. He was the transition voice between Tin Pan Alley and the Singer Songwriter, the bridge between Sinatra and Bob Dylan. Elvis innovated nothing, other than a lip curl and hip twitch, but he knew how to rock'n'roll.


    The Stones were and old school rock and roll band, and hardly changed over the years. They also tended to follow the trends rather than set any.


    The Beatles were neither of these things, and both. They started out as a rock and roll band, and they changed the way music was written and performed. The led the youth pop culture of the time, and became the embodiment of the Swinging Sixties. Musicians, artists, fashion designers and others were influenced by the Beatles for 50 or more years after they broke up. No one before or since has had such an artistic influence on society.


    Elvis and the Stones were the best at what they did, but the Beatles were a level above both in terms of influence and innovation

    The Beatles (Lennon/McCartney) gave away more songs to other bands and singers, which reached number 1 in the charts, than most bands had in success with their own songs and I mean big bands and well known singers.
    They are literally the biggest thing to emerge, with good influence, than anything before or after - except for Jesus.
    Biggest selling band in 2020.

    indeed the Beatles were a force to be reckoned with. my friend's big brother had Sgt. Pepper which was amazing. then came bigger albums .. Mystery Tour and the White and my favorites .. Abbey Road and Let It Be. those guys were really great.

    I grew up with them and had most of their albums. The amazing thing about them is none of their songs sounded anything like any of their others. Probably the most versatile band ever.
