    The Beatles easy, they are what got me into music.

    The Stones are a bore in my opinion. I agree with some people on here who say they are very overated.

    Two very different bands!
    Maybe you only know The Beatles first albums, which were more R&R, but even in these albums you can find very varied stuff, later they were really Masters in doing different things, listen to the White Album or Abbey Road as a couple of examples!!!

    The Beatles peaked for me on Revolver in 66', while the Stones hit their stride in 67' w/ Beggar Banquet and continued to put out great music up until Tattoo You in 78'. Sgt. Pepper may have been the Beatles commercial peak, but I think it's over-rated.

    Smile Continue the FIGHT !!

    I love Beatles and there is no one to beat it...But to hear the arguments of both the side there is a better way now. There is one rivalry created on

    We will be able to upload videos to justify our stand and will be able to continue our talk in Passion talk. Its a great tool for any rivalry and its fans, I love it.

    I am with you. I can´t find any level whatsoever of comparison, though I´ve been to one Stones concert in Copenhagen 1970 at the Forum, but unfortunately never attended The Beatles. The pepper-album by The Beatles (Parlophone 1967) has been my favourite album for fourty years. Every lyrics to every song has been sculptured in my mind, and I often sing any of the songs from the album (though only when I´m alone).
    IMHO "Sgt. Pepper´s lonely hearts club band" still innovative in it´s compositions and new every time I listen to it. What Stones album could possibly match that?

    I try to explain, but it's not easy...

    in my opinion (with my head), beatles music is better than rolling stone music. the beatles upset music, they were precursors of psychedelic music, but the rolling stones hurt my heart with their rock blues.
    it's like when you see a beautiful, intelligent and fascinating Top Model.. is'not automatic you will fall in love with her, maybe you will fall in love with your nice and passionate neighbour. It's love. do you agree?

    So you mean to say that the Beatles is the hot beauty model while the Stones is the neighbor. Do I get it right what you mean?

    Hi Grace

    Thank you for the explanation. I do understand what you mean and to a certain amount I agree on The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones.

    Only one arguement though against your reference to my neighbour. If you had seen my neighbour, you would not even use the expressions "nice" or "passionate"

    I never liked Rolling Stones :P
    I can bear to listen for a few minutes, though, as I can listen to any metallica. I just don't like it.

    C5Says and Grace

    I am with you C5Says mostly on the Stones. However the music from albums like "You Can´t Always Get What You Want" and "´Get Ya Ya Ya´s´s Out" are great for dancing. I attended the Stones at the Forum in 1970 in Copenhagen, could hardly see the stage for smoke of elegal "laughing tobacco", so to speak. also titled Mari....

    "Lucy In The Skies With Diamonds" by The Beatles from the Pepper album (my all time favourite The Beatles album) made some reviewers talk about LSD since some of the first letters in the "Lucy" song would indicate this.

    Both bands were into drugs in the late 1960´s. The lead guitarist from the Stones, Brian Jones died from an o.d. The Beatles turned to India and guruism, indian philosophy and George Harrison was taught in playing the zitar by the indian master Ravi Shankar. The same Ravi Shankar, who is the biological father to Norah Jones (piano, vocals), while teaching indian musical composition at the University of San Francisco, California, USA.

    John Lennon and Yoko Ono invited the world press to Denmark, while they had their honeymoon - naked, never leaving the bed (why didn´t I think of this while being married?). The first time in the history of the world, Denmark became known throughout the world.

    Years ago in 1984, I met an american in N.Y.C., who thought Denmark was a surburband to Stockholm, Sweden.

    maybe the example of the neighbour is not perfect... also because if you have a neighbour like the intet-at-tabe one, you can't understand.

    i like the beatles very much, i listen them many time and i think they are the band who definitly changed the music. so they are the best.
    i was just talking about emotion and rolling stones, in my opinion are very hot.
    i was explaining two different point of view.
    i'm like doc. jekyll and mr hide.

    Dear Grace

    There is nothing at all wrong with your answer, you came straight through to me - emotional, no problem, cool . You speak of The Rolling Stones emotionaly, I can easely follow you. The Beatles were sort of small gentlemen in nice suits (the same). The Stones - rockin. Mick Jagger´s sensual movements on the stage, his voice (he could actualy sing) and the music itself with much longer songs and the stage performance quite different from the Beatles (from what I´ve seen many years later in various programs of memory of The Beatles).

    The Stones could play much better rock music based on the blues, than the Beatles. Keith Richards was a much better solo guitarist than Goerge Harrison. They did extended concerts and their songs, the lyrics was not only about She Loves You Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. They had a deeper meaning. Both bands were popular, but The Stones were known, like The Who, to keep wild after-concerts-parties with hookers, alcohol, drugs and acid trips. Their relations to the Hells Angels often used as body gards at concerts, where everything ended up in huge fist fights and people driven for hospitalisation.

    Most people in Denmark and I guess the world found The Beatles and The Rolling Stones side by side in the 1960´s - AWESOME, but the audience were different according to, who you favoured. The whole wide world loved both of the groups, until John Lennon made some stupid remarks about God and Jesus Christ in a Johnny Carson show in the USA, because it was new almost like a fiction, a dream, it was new that young people demonstrated peacefully through the idea of playing music instead of violent demonstrations against the Police. It was new that all you had to do was to find a guitar, learn to play a few chords, then you were in a band. The newspapers made the image of The Rolling Stones in the 1960-70´s, what Guns & Roses became years later in the USA.

    Personaly, I loved The Beatles more than The Rolling Stones, but also my friends pressed me a bit, you know like groups of teen-boys do, I even had one of those grey Beatles jackets. Ringo Star and The Beatles was the reason for my years long extended career in practising air-drums The Beatles taught me more english, than I learned in public school. The Pepper album changed my life, I can sing it all through, while at sleep.

    Remember Grace we don´t disagree, and if we did it would be great to agree to disagree. Music is about taste, and you can´t discuss memories, nostalgia and emotions about, what you felt about both bands. But it´s still great from time to time to talk about it openly like here, where we´re all winners. I can still laugh or feel fear, remembering some of the crazy things, I did with friends in those days often life threatening, but boys are boys and somehow everything during the 1960´s were AWSOME and related to rock music.

    Sometimes, I almost wish myself back in time.
