And the Rutles. Tragical Hystery Tour, that must be copied from Magical Mystery Tour[;)][:o)].


I think that they did more a parody of The Beatles, like Dread Zeppelin did of Led Zeppelin.

Peace.

True, Scrod. He was a wannabe for sure [:D]

I recalled Frank Zappa with "We´re In It Only For The Money", parody of "Sgt.Pepper".

Peace.

Nito, didn't you forget Electric Light Orchestra? I think this band has a lot of Beatles influence in it too.


Beatles influence, yes, but not Beatle-copying. I do feel that ELO picked up where The Beatles left off in terms of groundbreaking musical achievement. Although they didn't quite have as big a following as The Beatles, of course! But I do think they were, on a musical level, the Beatles of the 70s.

Liam---you are way off my friend. They didn't pick up where the Beatles left off--not even close. They were a nice band, but to compare them in terms of groundbreaking achievement with the Beatles is daft. No comparison. None. Jeff Lynne is and will always be a nice producer...but a sure Beatles wannabe, without question.

Oh--and if anyone was considered, AT THE TIME, the "Beatles of the 70's", it was Elton John. Not that I ever agreed with that, mind you. There were no "Beatles of the 70's". The closest thing in my book, of course, was Macca himself.
