    the beatles vs The rolling stones

    which do you prefer, and why? id hafta say the stones, because they were much more diverse than the beatles, and to me, the beatles songs all sound the same.

    Re: the beatles vs The rolling stones

    I have to disagree with you on your view on The Beetles. In fact I think they were very much diverse, blending elements of rock, pop, and even some classical, and then more.

    But personally I think it's difficult to compare with the stones. It's a little like apples and organges to me. Anyhow, it's an interesting dicsussion

    I´m also on The Beatles side!

    They have made a lot of great songs. We use a lot of Beatles, in my musiclessons and that´s really cool!

    I don´t know much about The rolling stones....

    Re: the beatles vs The rolling stones

    I prefer the Beatles as well.
    As Christine, I know zillions of Beatles' songs, and just a couple of Stones' songs.

    I don't agree that all the Beatles songs sound the same. If you compare She loves you (yeah yeah yeah) to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, I don't think anyone would confuse the two

    Re: the beatles vs The rolling stones

    I really like many songs by both groups.

    I agree with Frederik Magle; that it`s hard to compare the two groups, they`re too different.

    One thing they have in common however is their longevity. You`ve got to respect any group or artist that manages to come out with hit after hit over such a long period of time - definitely not one-hit-wonders!

    It's hard but I think I go for the Beatles, but only because I don't know very much about the rolling stones..

    I prefer the Beatles but I have just listened to some digitally remastered old Rolling Stones Albums and suddenly I remembered some very good songs - in my opinion e. g. "Tumblin' dice", "Paint it black", "Beast of Burdon".

    Re: the beatles vs The rolling stones

    I would say the Beatles by far. I've never enjoyed the harder sound of the Rolling Stones. To me, it's the Rolling Stones' music that all sounds the same. The Beatles have many diverse tunes - from beautiful ballads to songs with fantastic rock beats.

    I give credit to the singers of both bands for being top entertainers for as long as they have. I just saw a concert that Paul McCartney did in St. Petersburg - he can still rock with the best of them. When the Beatles first started, some people said that the Beatles would never last and could anyone imagine a 40-year-old Beatle - well, Paul's in his 60's and he's still got it!!

    I would say The Beatles, I have never been that fond of The Rolling stones, even though they made some great songs

    If you can name one song by the Beatles that was deemed a "Dud", please let me know. I honestly cannot think of one song off the top of my head that wasn't innovative and diverse. Now I also am slightly swayed by the fact that I dislike The Rolling Stones.

    Re: the beatles vs The rolling stones

    In my garage band of the late sixties (Jr. High and High School) we did 2 Stones songs and a handful or more of the the Beatles.
    Satisfaction was one of the first songs to use a "fuzz" box (distortion) so we all had to go out and buy a fuzz box and figure out how to use it. Paint It Black became our banner psychedelic song (from our arrangement). Keith Richards would ocassionally hit a guitar riff and sound that lit things up. But it was the Beatles who were song writers and had the breadth to take a philosophical view on things. That is why I like them better.

    Re: the beatles vs The rolling stones

    I honestly just don't know how you can compare the two. The Beatles have to be one of THE greatest bands of all time. I am sure that many people would agree with me. Although the Rolling Stones got very popular at the climax of their career, their success was way short to that of the Beatles.

    Re: the beatles vs The rolling stones

    Saw Paul McCartney last weekend here in Houston and wouldn't ya know it The Rolling Stones are in the house Thursday. Wow!!!.But in reply to your post. I never cared much for the Stones..Seen them in 1977 and left after a few songs. They dont do anything for me personally. After seeing Paul live and play the songs I grew up with for the most part, was a moving experience indeed..When Paul played "Helter Skelter"...never thought I would hear that..I was so close to the stage I had to see what Paul would do..I yelled" I got blisters on my fingers" ..He looked right at me and smiled big as a chesshire cat he did..Made my DAY!!! The Beatles rule!!! (also I don't recall anyone ever being stabbed or beaten to death at a Beatles concert)

    Normaly I would choose the band that got the least votes just to be a rebal, but this time I have to go with the Beatles. Don't get me wrong, the stones is a great band, but I find myself listening to the Beatles more.

    Beatles!! They are actually my favorite band ever!! Stones are great too, but the Beatles changed everything! I never get sick of their music. I have recorded a cover of "The Inner Light" on my electric violin..
