The Rolling Stones - especially the post-Brian Jones line-up - are essentially a blues-based rock and roll band. The Beatles are a pop/rock band. Whether you like one or the other is a matter of personal taste. It's not a competition.
been thinking about this. comparisons can
bore you. but that may never stop them from happening. it's human nature. we use comparisons (or best of lists) to justify our
own opinions (which is silly, really...as we all have to be our own critics. therefore, we all have our own personal best of lists). but we can point to a list that says the beatles are best...and say...see, i think the beatles are best, and this list proves it. just as we all seem to ignore lists that disagree with what we think. maybe it is human nature to want to try and justify our own opinions. petty? probably. but normal? yep-in-deedy.
and i happen to be one who thinks both the beatles and the stones are awesome.
having said that...i know a mowhawk wearing, tomahawk throwing momma that'll scalp anyone who begs to differ.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
