Yes, by all accounts it appears they were more 'punk' than punk bands themselves some twenty years later...!

Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if Epstein had never descended those stairs down to The Cavern in 1961 to see them play...

I'm sure someone would have snatched them up, but imagine if they hadn't :o What would the music scene be like today with no Beatles? I guess we would have been spared Oasis ;)

7. White Album (Some great songs/Some NOT!)


McCartney came out with a funny remark about the White Album. he remarked about people saying that it would make a great single album, etc. His reply was "It's The Beatles...It's the White Album, SHUT UP!"
Made me laugh anyway.
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black. The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage.

John Lennon wasn't on 8 December 1980.
Ooh! Thats a bit below the belt Ian  :-X.

Analog RH

Revolver, Abbey Road, Let In Be (Naked), The White Album. All landmark records and fundamentals in my ever increasing CD collection.

And that's from the perspective of someone who wasn't even born when they split up. I bet the shock and awe those albums instilled in the 60s was wonderful.

Im sorry but I just dont get why the Beatles are so popular :-[ The Stones were a much better option (IMO,and im not even a Stones fan).I dont think Beatles material has weathered very well :o :-[ ,Its constantly a reminder of the 60`s, which were boring anyway. The 70s were the defining time for music (Again IMO)..Sorry to upset all the Beatles fans on here BUT I just dont like them .

You're not going to get an argument out of me Steve - I keep banging on about musically taste being a very personal thing, no one has the right to tell me what I should like/dislike other than me. I love the Beatles, always have done, but have never 'got' the Stones...each to his own eh?

Nobody's going to get upset because you don't like them, mate - the great majority of informed appreciators of music do. As for the '60s being boring - umm, OK ;)

My dad was in to them but my mum didn't really like them so never really heard much of their music - or so I thought.

Like Ash I know pretty much all of their stuff and it must of come from the radio. I bought No.1 their greatest hits and I own sergent pepper and I'm happy with that, Elenor Rigby, paperback writer and The Ballad of John and Yoko are by far my favorites.

As for the Stones, they were alright I only like a few of their songs and I find the rest pants, I know more Beatles stuff than I do Stones and I guess if I'd been old enough to appreciate their music then I would of most definatly sat in the Beatles camp.

The Beatles music hasn't weathered well ???
However much you dislike them, you surely can't believe that statement to be true.

I've got the Grey Album, White Album beats with Jay Z's Black Album vox. Clever idea, and golly it works.

Perhaps The Beatles "white" album mixed with Metallica's "black" album would have made a good grey album...
...or perhaps not.
