Who ever said the Beatles were the Greatest Rock Band, don't know their music. I was fifteen when the Beatles first came out, I did not like them then as I don't like them now, but one can not take away what they did for music. They were one of the Greastest Bands.
When the Beatles first came out they were not that well liked by boys, "as in myself at that time", they were more liked by the girls of that time.
Why did us boys, not like the Beatles at that time, because they were not playing music with a heavier blues beat as bands like, The Who, The Animals, The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, and The Kinks, who none of sounded like the Beatles or who never even tried to sound like the Beatles.
But I am a big fan of John and George.
The Beatles were great but not the greatest musicians at all, just listen or read what George Harrsion had to say on The Beatles. "Having played with other musicians, I don't even think The Beatles were that good."
And the only band ever called the Greast "Rock" Band in the world and that was by there peers, and that was the Rolling Stones. At that time.
So you for saying the Beatles don't sound that good, I guess you don't know great music when you hear it.
Oh! are you not supposed to be in pre-school by now?
